The Gateway Chamber Orchestra (GCO) presents [email protected]: Humanity in 2020, a free streaming online musical event celebrating composer Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday on Wednesday, December 16, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. CT. The virtual concert also honors the works of two groundbreaking composers in classical music: George Walker, the first African American composer to win the Pulitzer Prize, and Jessie Montgomery, one of the most energetic and inspiring interpreters of the American ethos.

 

The performance, recorded in beautiful Mabry Concert Hall on the campus of Austin Peay State University, is a fitting soundtrack to a momentous year. From the centennial anniversary of the passing of the 19th Amendment to the rise of the pandemic to the outcry for social justice, 2020 has made a distinctive mark on humanity. The GCO captures this sentiment in an evening of moving performances that embody “tragedy to triumph,” a theme made famous by classical music’s most revolutionary composer.

 

[email protected]: Humanity in 2020 is the first virtual concert to be performed and streamed on YouTube by GCO. This is a free online event and attendees need to register on Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/beethoven250-humanity-in-2020-tickets-130266519667
