Ode to Joy
Mississippi Symphony Orchestra

Ode to Joy

Under 18 With Guardian
A message of unity, featuring choirs of Jackson State, Mississippi College, Tougaloo College & The Mississippi Chorus!

Four national soloists Othalie Graham, Christin-Marie Hill, John Pickle, Luis Ledesma, and four local choirs - two hundred voices onstage - wrap up the diamond anniversary Bravo series with a unifying bow. The artistic excellence and community connection of Arvo Pärt's minimalist masterpiece Fratres, and the driving force of Beethoven's earth-shattering 9th symphony are unsurpassed!

Cash bar in lobby prior to the concert and during intermission.

Pre-concert lecture by Dr. Timothy Coker on the mezzanine level, 6:45-7:15pm.

Concert Program:

Othalie Graham, soprano
