Ludwig van Beethoven was born in December 1770 in Bonn, Germany and became a well-known musician in his own lifetime - mostly for his music but a little for his unpredictable moods.
The Windsor Community Orchestra will be celebrating the 250th year of his birth by rehearsing and performing his 5th Symphony and other short pieces throughout the year. This spring, our programme includes the first and second movements of the 5th Symphony (abridged and in an easier key), as well as the Scherzo from his Piano Sonata opus 28. We'll then perform the other movements of the symphony (similarly abridged and simplified) and other short pieces later in the year.
We invite you to join us, either as an orchestra member or at our Spring Concert on Thursday 26th March. Full details of the concert can be found on our Calendar page.
