The Virginia Arts Festival's celebration of Beethoven's 250th Birthday is also a grand farewell to a beloved member of the region's music community--an emotional event you won't want to miss. Marking her final season as Music Director of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, JoAnn Falletta will lead the orchestra, soloists, and the Virginia Symphony Chorus in Beethoven's soaring Ninth Symphony, with its mighty anthem "Ode to Joy."
