Da da da duhhhhh! It has one of the most famous openings in all of music, appearing in everything from The Walking Dead to The Simpsons. Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony is a thriller and a longtime audience favorite. Bring the whole family to enjoy this high-octane classic alongside the delightful, folk-inspired Holberg Suite by Edvard Grieg. The program includes a world premiere by Haitian-American Nathalie Joachim. Guest conductor Eric Jacobsen returns after making his Festival debut in 2023.
