Yannick and the Orchestra close the 2021–22 subscription season with a joyful celebration of Beethoven, performing the iconic Symphony No. 9.

Composer-in-Residence Gabriela Lena Frank draws inspiration from Beethoven and her Peruvian culture in Pachamama Meets an Ode, challenging us to look at gifts from the past with new and searching eyes.
