Macao Orchestra wraps up its busy 2017-18 season with a final concert, featuring Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125, “Choral”, arguably the German composer's most famous work; particularly because of its final movement, which features a choral theme also known as “Ode to Joy”. The Orchestra has invited the Taipei Philharmonic Chorus, directed by John Ku Yu-Chung, as well as a range of singers from China – soprano Song Yuanming, mezzo-soprano Niu Shasha, tenor Shi Yijie, and bass Guan Zhijing – to add spark to the performance. This season-closing concert led by conductor Lu Jia lasts for about 60 minutes, with no interval.
