Beethoven Lives!

On Saturday, April 22, I joined several other Oratorio Society members in a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 (the “Choral” symphony) in Roanoke, with the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra under the baton of maestro David Stewart Wiley. The nearly 200-person chorus was comprised of contingents from the Roanoke Symphony Chorus, Roanoke College, Southern Virginia University, and UVA’s University Singers, in addition to our own representatives.

Performers in Roanoke were soprano Heidi Kupke, altos Nancy Davis-Imhoff, Angela Herstek-Zongilla, Joanie McGuire, Katy Sinclair and Joy Tobias. Basses were represented by Jason Boemer, Bob Dickman, Ron Gaykema, Steve Harris, Frank Sherwood, Fred Simon, David Tate, Jan Tobias and myself.   (more . . .)
