Beethoven Missa solemnis

The new digital world embraces Beethoven’s old world in these groundbreaking performances of his renowned but rarely performed Missa solemnis. In collaboration with Refik Anadol, one of the world’s leading visual artists, the interior of Verizon Hall will be transformed into a virtual, multi-denominational cathedral through the magic of artificial intelligence and data visualization. If only Beethoven were here to see this!
