SoNA will continue its season with another of their Masterworks concerts next month.

This time, the symphony celebrate Beethoven with a new show, Masterworks II: Beethoven 5, at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 4.

The symphony will perform under the baton of music director Paul Haas, and the show will feature the talent of violinist Alexi Kenney, recent winner of the Avery Fisher Career grant for his work on the instrument.

Kenney will perform Sibelius’ Violin Concerto as part of the show.

The event will also include performances of Arvo Pärt’s Fratres for strings and percussion, and Beethoven’s masterpiece, Symphony No. 5.

“Beethoven No. 5 is perhaps the most famous piece of music on the planet, in all its struggle and glory,” Haas said. “Written as Beethoven was beginning to realize he was going deaf, the Fifth almost immediately became the standard by which all other symphonies were judged. Today, known to some extent by the vast majority of humankind, it reminds us all of the depth, power and universality of classical music.”

Tickets to the show range from $30-52, and are on sale now at the Walton Arts Center. Some tickets for college students are also available for $10 each.
