Joy, bright spark of divinity. Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is Classical music’s most beloved celebration of the human spirit - a grand ode to joy propelled by Romantic fervour and Beethoven’s triumphant struggle against the limits of body and spirit. The two performances will be conducted by famed Japanese maestro Masaaki Suzuki.

Together in celebration: Forty-ssimo, the 40th anniversary of the Singapore Symphony Chorus.
