The celebrations aren’t confined to the concert hall: this year the Beethovenfest will open its season with a grand three-day open-air festival. All Bonn residents and visitors are cordially invited to take part. Friday evening, there will be a live screening of the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra concert with the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra. On Saturday, more than 1000 of the city’s schoolchildren will convene on six stages, transforming the city centre into a gigantic sound-space. The evening will feature a nod to Beethoven: the Ninth, conducted by Herbert von Karajan on the large projection screen in front of City Hall. The celebrations will continue on Sunday at the same spot: public viewing from Bonn’s World Conference Centre, with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra playing colourful Russian music and Beethoven at his very best!
