More than 100 singers from a dozen Orange County choruses unite to give voice to Beethoven’s crowning achievement — Beethoven’s Ninth — for Pacific Symphony’s final concert of Summer Festival 2010, sponsored by Hoag Hospital. Led by guest conductor Robert Moody, this monumental fusion of soloists, chorus and music — all set to Schiller’s Ode to Joy — features four world-class opera singers who take on the florid and challenging solo passages in the fourth movement of Beethoven’s Ninth.

Program:

Gould — American Salute

Barber — Adagio for Strings

Ward — America the Beautiful

Beethoven — Symphony No. 9
