5–6 Jun WASO MACA Limited Classics Series: Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony Music|Concerts

On World Environment Day, we participate in an international United Nations-led project to inspire everyone to take a stance on climate change. Beethoven’s Pastoral symphony is an evocative portrait of the harmonious and fragile unity between mankind and nature that blooms with rich detail in the hands of Asher Fisch. Britten’s timeless Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is endlessly entertaining. Iain Grandage will guide us on a journey of infectious discovery with one of the world’s most enduring classics. Bring the family.

12–13 Jun WASO Masters Series: Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis Music|Concerts

Beethoven’s audacious choral masterpiece pits belief and doubt in a battle for supremacy. In 1823 the composer first presented this monumental work of art, declaring it ‘the most successful product of his mind’. Asher Fisch leads an all-star cast of soloists and two choirs through this rich and staggeringly beautiful score. Here, Beethoven’s musical vision of the divine is delivered with almighty power by WASO for a transcendent live concert experience.
