Here is an exciting event series for lovers of classical music: the Ludwig Van Beethoven Festival.
During the weekend of Pentecost, the LAC Lugano and its partners will host a festival dedicated to the great German composer. For one, there will be a multimedia installation exploring the role of Beethoven's music in contemporary media.
The resident orchestra will perform two of Beethoven's odd symphonies inside the gorgeous concert hall of the LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura.
And as a grand finale, there will be an outdoor concert at Piazzia Luini in front of the lakeside museum. Beethoven’s ninth symphony with more than 200 choir singers from all over Ticino will surely be a memorable "Ode to Joy"... Did we mention the grand finale is free of charge?
