Together, Gustavo Dudamel and the Los Angeles Philharmonic create music "at a level that could only be described as sublime” (San Francisco Classical Voice). The program opens with Pollux, a newly commissioned work by Esa-Pekka Salonen. The orchestra then joins forces with the Washington Chorus, Choral Arts Society of Washington, Catholic University Chorus, and members of Washington Performing Arts’s own Men and Women of the Gospel Choir for a can’t-miss performance of Beethoven’s beloved Ninth Symphony. 

Performance Timing: Approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission.
