Ent Center for the Arts

Thomas Wilson author and conductor

Ludwig Van Beethoven and his famous Fifth Symphony are enshrined as treasures of the orchestral world. But what inspired its deceptively simple opening bars, and how did Beethoven devise such a thrilling climax that compels the listener on and on toward the infinite? Thomas Wilson and the Philharmonic provide some of the answers.

The first half of the concert will explore the background of Beethoven 5 through photography, video, narration, and acting.


Ludwig van Beethoven
Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67
