Our season of heroes begins with Beethoven’s monumental Symphony No. 3, The Eroica(Heroic Symphony). Although the work was originally dedicated to Napoleon, that dedication was withdrawn once Napoleon declared himself Emperor! The Classical Series opens with Beethoven’s EgmontOverture portraying the life and heroism of the 16th-century Count of Egmont. A hero of the YSO, principal trumpeter Nathan Clark, will also perform the Hummel Trumpet Concerto.
