Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony

For many people, Beethoven's ninth symphony is more immediately recognizable as "the music from Die Hard." There's nothing wrong with that, but if you want to really appreciate the mighty Ninth, you should hear the whole symphony front to back in a live setting. And guess what the St. Louis Symphony is doing next? Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 celebrates the joy that comes from believing God is above the stars in the sky's vault, to paraphrase the fourth movement, and even if you're not a believer, you'll feel something during that incredible finale. The St. Louis Symphony and the St. Louis Symphony Chorus join forces (along with four esteemed guest singers) to perform the all-consuming work of art. Concerts start at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday (February 7 to 9) at Powell Hall (718 North Grand Boulevard; Tickets are $15 to $95.
