Summer at Orchestra Hall

Led by Creative Partner Jon Kimura Parker, we’ve curated four weeks of music that illuminate Beethoven’s musical universe and explore his influences and the composers he influenced in return. It’s a celebration of unexpected pairings, old traditions with a modern twist, and thrilling juxtapositions that demonstrate this epic composer’s far-reaching impact.
