This weekend marks the third time, and the first since 2009, that the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra has performed Beethoven’s final symphony, perhaps best known as his choral “Ode to Joy” symphony.
The Lubbock Chorale, Lubbock Symphony Orchestra, and the Texas Tech University Choir performed Ludwig von Beethoven’s “The Triumph,” also known as Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 13, and Saturday, Oct. 14, at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center
Tony DeSare’s first instrument played was a violin but, by the time he reached his mid-teens, he had grown far more comfortable as a piano man.
This year's catalog will feature classical masterworks and pop songs from times past. The season will kick off mid-September with Sinatra and Beyond, a one-night only collection of hits from Frank Sinatra and will end in early May with The Folk Spirit.
