Posthumous Composer in Residence: Ludwig van Beethoven

beethoven in 1804

New music across the centuries: the Firm Season 2020 celebrates the 250th anniversary of Beethoven's birth.

Though the Firm moves slowly, we are still here, active and making plans for concerts in 2020. What shape those concerts take, whether at Elder Hall in front of an audience, or web streamed to you in your homes, only time will tell.
