The International Beethoven Festival: REVOLUTION 2012 is an eight day celebration of one of the world's greatest composers and his ongoing legacy. It begins this Saturday with a Grand Opening Concert befitting the legend.
The evening begins with the specially commissioned World Premiere of "Forza Vita" Festival Overture, written by New York City's award-winning David Winkler. This is followed by Grammy Award Winning violinist James Ehnes performing Beethoven's beloved Violin Concerto in D Major, Opus 61.
