Delco Symphony Plays The 5th — The Delaware County Symphony will perform Beethoven’s well known Fifth Symphony this Sunday, March 5, at Neumann University’s Meagher Theater.
The music begins at 3 p.m. but plan on arriving early to enjoy a discussion with Dr C. Michael Kelly at 2 p.m. regarding the program’s selections and composers. Peace and Hope, the title of the afternoon’s performance begins with Franz Schubert’s “unfinished symphony”. In addition special guest cellist Udi Bar-David joins the orchestra for Antonin Dvorak’s Cello Concerto in B Minor. Concluding the show, Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony Number 5 in C Minor, is sure to delight experienced concert goers and novice listeners alike.
Tickets for the concert, available day of show, are $18 general admission; $15 for seniors and students. Neumann University students receive free admission as do children 12 and under accompanied by a paying adult. Ample free parking is available.
