Andrew Grams and
The Elgin Symphony Orchestra
Beethoven Symphony No. 7
Andrew Grams and the ESO demystify the process of creating a masterwork. Dive deep into Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in the first half of the event, as Andrew Grams explores what makes a great piece of music using excerpts performed by the ESO. After intermission, the orchestra plays the entire work with the audience experiencing a deeper connection to the piece.
Nick Kubiak, ESO Intern: This program looks really interesting to me. I like that it’s informal and shorter than a typical concert. It will give me an insider’s look into classical music, something I’ve always been curious about.
