Enjoy a beer garden, German food, and fun—a preview of Cary’s Oktoberfest Celebration—while you experience the impeccable musical craftsmanship of Beethoven. The program begins with the stormy Egmont Overture and the lighthearted, bubbly Symphony No. 8. Then, pianist Gilles Vonsattel—praised for bringing a sense of adventure to everything he plays—is featured in Beethoven’s final piano concerto, nicknamed the “Emperor” for its grandeur.
