Folsom Symphony opens up Beethoven rehearsal

The Folsom Symphony is proud to report its “Glorious Beethoven!” concert, featuring the fabulous Ninth Symphony, has sold out two weeks early — for both performances March 24 and 25.
For people who missed getting tickets, the symphony is opening its final rehearsal at a discounted price. The symphony has never before offered tickets to a rehearsal, but this concert sold out so quickly it’s expected more people would like to hear this work. Beethoven’s Ninth is universally considered one of the finest pieces of music ever written.
The rehearsal tickets are $20 for all seats. The program is at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 23, at Three Stages main stage, the same concert hall as the full performance. Order tickets at www.folsomsymphony.com under the tab “Tickets” or by calling (916) 608-6888.
Seats will be reserved and sold as first-come, first-served, with the main floor orchestra assigned first. The earliest reservations will receive the best seats; however, in this theater, with its superb acoustics, there are no bad seats.
Although this is a rehearsal, it will be a first-quality show. The symphony and the Sacramento Master Singers, who will sing the choral portions of Beethoven’s Ninth and other pieces, will perform the full concert. However, because it’s a rehearsal, there may be a few interruptions as the conductors refine the presentation.
The program will open with Dr. Ralph Hughes, director of the Master Singers, leading the orchestra and chorus in two works: Vaughan Williams’ “Toward the Unknown Region” and John Rutter’s “Te Deum.”
Folsom Symphony conductor Maestro Michael Neumann will lead the ensemble through the Beethoven piece, which concludes with the famous choral finale, “Ode to Joy.” Four soloists perform: soprano Robin Fisher, mezzo-soprano Buffy Baggott, tenor Jaeho Lee and bass-baritone Burr Phillips.
