Greater South Jersey Chorus Joins Bay Atlantic Symphony for Season Finale Performance of Beethoven’s Ninth!
May 7 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
One event on May 7, 2023 at 3:00 pm
Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 is performed by the Bay Atlantic Symphony, the 120-member Greater South Jersey Chorus and four vocal soloists, Soprano Lori Hultgren, Mezzo-Soprano Barbara Dever, Tenor Min Jin and Bass-Baritone Robert Cantrell. Played in D minor, Symphony No. 9 is considered Beethoven’s greatest work and one of the supreme achievements in the history of music. It is the first example of a major composer using voices in a symphony. Known as the “Dean of Afro-American Composers” William Grant Still’s Phantom Chapel opens the concert and sets a tone through its cosmic mystery. The Ninth! is the finale concert of a five-concert season celebrating Bay Atlantic Symphony’s 40th Anniversary and the 25th anniversary of Maestro and Music Director Jed Gaylin.
Saturday, May 6 at 3 pm at Guaracini Performing Arts Center (Rowan University Cumberland Campus) 3322 College Dr., Vineland.
Sunday, May 7 at 2 pm at Stockton University’s Performing Arts Center, 101 Vera King Farris Dr., Galloway.
