Yannick Nézet-Séguin Conductor
Habibi Jeder Baum spricht
Beethoven Symphony No. 5
Beethoven Symphony No. 6 (“Pastoral”)
On March 12, 2020, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra performed its BeethovenNOW: Symphonies 5 & 6 program to an empty Verizon Hall, sharing a live broadcast with listeners across the globe—just before the City of Philadelphia’s impending shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
One year later, we invite you to join us for a rebroadcast of this now-historic performance, dedicated to those who lost their lives due to the pandemic. This special presentation is available free of charge on the Orchestra’s Digital Stage.
Ticket holders will be invited to participate in a live pre-concert conversation and Q&A with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Orchestra President and CEO Matías Tarnopolsky on Friday, March 12, 2021, at 7:30 PM ET.
