Australian Chamber Choir | Ludwig Van We Missed Your Birthday!

21 March 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm AEDT

This live event will also be streamed online 

It’s not every day you celebrate a 250th birthday.  Australian Chamber Choir invites you to be their guest in Beethoven’s salon. Be introduced to some of Beethoven’s friends and acquaintances via some rarely performed treasures, including a first Australian performance of his Elegy Op.118. All being performed are a few composers the choir think Beethoven might enjoy meeting.

“Join us at the party where dreams become reality.”

Book a seat or seats for this concert and your ticket also entitles you to watch on demand for a month after the concert.
