MOSC to Perform Beethoven's 8th
(Midland/Odessa, Texas) The Midland-Odessa Symphony orchestra will perform “Beethoven’s 8th” (formerly Tchaikovsky Four) for the finale of their masterworks series on April 10th at 7:30pm at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the title and program had to be changed and Tchaikovsky Four tickets will be honored for entrance into Beethoven’s 8th.
Ludwig van Beethoven is widely regarded as one of history’s most well-known composers. Known for his odd numbers symphonies that were often bold and ferocious, his even-numbered symphonies were sometimes overlooked. Beethoven had a great fondness for his Eighth Symphony, which he lovingly referred to as “my little Symphony in F”. Audiences will enjoy the light and humorous nature of the piece, it’s dynamic instrumentation, plus a unique and playful conclusion.
Led by Music Director & Conductor Gary Lewis, the symphony is complimented by the Overture to great Italian composer Gioachino Rossini’s opera “The Italian In Algiers” followed by George Walker’s “Lyric for Stings” and Charles Gounod’s “Petite Symphonie”.
Masks are required for entrance and seating will be socially distanced. Please follow all safety precautions outlined by the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center.
Tickets start at just $10 and can be purchased at MOSC.ORG. Student tickets are FREE with a paying adult or valid college ID.
