Few things are more soothing than classical music, so students looking to relax before break should look no further than Jorgensen’s hosting of the Beethoven Orchestra Bonn March 14 at 7:30 p.m.
The orchestra itself is more than 100 years old and hails from Bonn, Germany, the birthplace of Ludwig van Beethoven. Thursday night’s performance will feature his “Symphony No. 7, Op. 92” in A Major, which Jorgensen’s website claims the composer personally considered one of his best.
Before the symphony plays, Louis Lorie, called “one of a half-dozen pianists worth dropping everything to hear” by London’s Daily Telegraph, will open the show with a performance of Beethoven’s “Piano Concerto No. 5, Op. 73” in E-flat major, widely considered one of the composer’s best concertos.
While tickets for non-students range from $39 to $46, students can get in for $10 with a valid UConn ID. Non-UConn students with IDs can buy tickets for $15.
