Eroica – Beethoven & Blue Jeans
Date(s) - November 24, 2019
2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Mobile Saenger Theatre
The Mobile Symphony’s popular Beethoven and Blue Jeans casual concert is back with Beethoven’s heroic Symphony No. 3, “Eroica, ” Saturday, Nov. 23, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 24, at 2:30 p.m. at the Saenger. Beethoven became deeply disillusioned with his hero Napoleon, for whom he wrote his third symphony. But our concert is right on target with heroic young violin virtuoso Paul Huang, recipient of a prestigious 2015 Avery Fisher Career Grant and a 2017 Lincoln Center Award for Emerging Artists. The concert also includes a world premiere of Austin Wintory’s latest work. The audience is encouraged to dress casually, since even the orchestra will be in jeans and t-shirts. So, dress down and leave uplifted!
