Royal Holloway in Concert

29 January 2020, 7:30

The Oct

To mark the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth in 2020, Royal Holloway, University of London, presents a programme of, and inspired by, his works. Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is a cornerstone of the classical repertoire. Its uplifting theme of unity reflects Royal Holloway’s strong sense of community.

Complementing this is Cecilia McDowall’s Ave Maris Stella. It takes as its central theme words from Woodrow Wilson “the freedom of the seas is the sine qua non of peace, equality and co-operation”. The choir will be joined by soloist and alumna, Sarah Fox.

Taking inspiration from Beethoven’s work and legacy, a new commission from prize-winning Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi will open the concert.
