Young joins #GlobalOdeToJoy

25 November 2020

Concertgebouworkest Young joins more than 100 participants from 29 countries who are all playing the famous tune from Beethoven's Ninth Symphony together in the online video project #GlobalOdeToJoy.

Due to covid-19, the 2020 edition of Concertgebouworkest Young is postponed to 2021. Fortunately, music transcends borders, and we can all still make music from our own homes.

Global Ode to Joy is an international online video project celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday, and Concertgebouworkest Young is joining. Beethoven saw his Ninth Symphony and its famous Ode to Joy as a journey from utter despair to ultimate joy. #GlobalOdeToJoy aims to bring musicians together in these trying times. From today, you can enjoy the participation of Concertgebouworkest Young on YouTube.
