Symphony No. 9 is Beethoven at his most revolutionary and philosophical – including its exuberant finale, the “Ode to Joy” chorus. Xian’s Yellow River Cantata, with its famous “Ode to the Yellow River,” is one of China’s quintessential and most celebrated choral works.

Guest ensembles: Kang Hua Singers (Chai-lunYueh, director) for Yellow River, – Farmington High School Chamber Choir (Leslie Imse, director) for Beethoven.
