Come and celebrate Ludwig’s 250th birthday with an “expect the unexpected” performance of his work from current and past members of Nelson Central School Choir and members of The Voice Collective.
Central School Te Pouahi will provide a welcome before the choir singers take on a freshly written hip hop version of Beethoven’s 5th movement. The vocal performance will sit alongside compositions and stories about his amazing life. Classical music is international and multicultural. A universal language which has no barriers. This performance challenges prejudice and stereotypes and brings all ages from 12 years together to celebrate this.
“Music is a higher revelation than all wisdom and philosophy. Music is the electrical soil in which the spirit lives, thinks and invents.” - Ludwig van Beethoven.
