CCM’s monthlong celebration of the legacy of Ludwig van Beethoven concludes this Friday, Oct. 12, with an 8 p.m. performance by the Concert Orchestra. Maestro Gibson will share the baton with student conductors during this festival-ending concert in UC’s Corbett Auditorium.

The evening’s program includes Wagner’s Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg followed by Beethoven’s very first full symphony, Symphony No. 1 in C Major. Each movement of Beethoven’s first will be conducted by a different graduate student conductor.

The festival will conclude with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 (Pastoral), which was famously featured in Disney’s 1940 film Fantasia. To help set the pastoral scene, you can view an excerpt from that film below:
