KAMLOOPS — The Beethoven Festival wraps up Saturday after a week of spreading musical awareness.
The Beethoven Festival has featured concerts, guest conductors, films and speakers.
The festival concludes with one of the greatest symphonic works ever composed. The Kamloops Symphony Orchestra will perform Beethoven's Ode to Joy Saturday night at 7 p.m. in the Sagebrush Theatre.
The concert, conducted by Bruce Dunn, will feature the beginning of Beethoven's symphonic journey with his Symphony No. 1 and conclude with his final creation, Symphony No. 9.
The festival kicked off last weekend with a symphonic flash mob.
Members of the Kamloops Symphony and the Kamloops Choristers descended on the farmer’s market for a quick rendition of Ode to Joy.
