March 8 – Beethoven the Revolutionary – Marking 250 Years of Great Music
The year 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of the birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven. The White Lake Music Society will celebrate this milestone by offering this special lecture by Robert Swan. Let us honor together the 250th anniversary of the birth of one of western civilization’s greatest geniuses! Listen to examples of some of his most profound and important music. Reflect on his life, difficult and misunderstood, and see how it expressed itself through his art in a way not seen before. Beethoven is Bob’s hero and he will explain why.
