Celebrate Brandeis-Wellesley Orchestra’s 20th anniversary with a spectacular concert of Beethoven and Hailstork.

The Brandeis-Wellesley Orchestra will perform Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 9” and Hailstork’s “Fanfare on Amazing Grace,” with the combined choruses of Brandeis University, Wellesley College and the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Directed by Neal Hampton and featuring vocalists Deborah Selig, soprano; Stephanie Kacoyanis, alto; Matthew Anderson, tenor; and Daniel Brevik, bass.

Sponsored by the Brandeis Department of Music.

Beethoven’s ninth symphony is popularly known as the “Ode to Joy” symphony for its fourth movement, which sets parts of Schiller’s poem “An Die Freude” (“Ode To Joy”), which has as its theme the universal brotherhood of mankind.

Adolphus Hailstork (born in Rochester, New York, in 1941) wrote “Fanfare on Amazing Grace” in 2003 for organ, an instrument he studied as a student at Howard University, and five years later orchestrated it for the Virginia Symphony Orchestra conducted by JoAnn Falletta, who premiered and recorded it in May 2011. The work was broadcast worldwide on Jan. 20, 2021, as part of the music for the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
