Guest conductor Christian Macelaru will join the Naples Philharmonic and the Naples Philharmonic Chorus at Artis—Naples on April 10-12 for Beethoven’s seminal work, Symphony No. 9.
Associate conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, Macelaru was the recipient of the 2012 Sir Georg Solti Emerging Conductor Award, putting him on the map of conductors to watch. Paired with the Naples Phil and the 100-voice strong Naples Philharmonic Chorus, this program looks to welcome spring with Beethoven’s final symphony, the orchestration of Friedwich Schiller’s poem “Ode to Joy.”
