One of the most well-known composers across history, Ludwig van Beethoven led an interesting career that bridged the classical and romantic musical eras. This Saturday, the Fourth movement from one of his most recognizable symphonies (affectionately known as the “Choral” Symphony) will be performed as the Louisiana Philharmonic's title piece.

Conducting the evening is LPO's musical director, Carlos Miguel Prieto. Joining the orchestra for Beethoven's famous “Ode To Joy” are mezzo-soprano Margaret Lattimore and the Symphony Chorus of New Orleans.

The concert event will also include Bruckner's Psalm 150, and Brahms' Rhapsody for Alto, Male, Chorus, and Orchestra. Curtains rise at 7:30pm on Saturday, May 24, at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. For ticket information, visit LPO's website.

This is the final performance in LPO's Classics series, and their last concert scheduled for the 2013-14 season.
