A Selective Guide to the Arts in Los Angeles

The Philharmonic Society of Orange County is offering Culture Spot readers discount tickets to its Beethoven concerts on Monday, Nov. 19, and Tuesday, Nov. 20. Showcasing Beethoven at the pinnacle of his composing prowess, Sir John Eliot Gardiner will lead the orchestra and choir in performances of two of Beethoven’s late masterpieces over the course of two evenings.

The first evening features Beethoven’s epic choral work, Missa Solemnis in D major, Op. 123, a work that the ensemble had not performed in a decade prior to its current European and American tour.

The second evening continues with Beethoven’s final complete symphony and the crown jewel of the symphonic repertoire—Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125—along with the composer’s Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage, Op. 112. A pre-concert lecture by Philharmonic Society President and Artistic Director Dean Corey will begin at 7 p.m. each night. Both performances are part of the Society’s multi-season Beethoven: The Late Great celebration.
