Oh, the joy! 315 years of birthdays and anniversaries to celebrate in one sitting. We hope you are party-hardened! So, here it is: 200 years of Ludwig’s Ninth, 50 years of your favorite orchestra, 10 years of the Summermusik festival, and … ah, but we won’t tell you that last one just now. It’ll be a surprise! So, we close the festival with a birthday party, but we are mostly the guests. It is YOU, our audience, that we’ll be celebrating, because without your support of 50, 10, or any number of years, tonight would not have been possible.

Approximately 2 hours with a 15-minute intermission
