Ring in the New Year -A New Years Eve Afternoon of Classical Music with Betsy Schwarm
OLLI at DU's gift to you: An Ode to Joy for New Year’s Eve!
Saturday, December 31, 2022: 1pm to 3pm Mountain Time
Closing out the old year with all the Beethoven symphonies – culminating with the Ode to Joy – seems an unsurpassed way of leading into the new year with optimism. Beethoven was a regular part of New Year’s Eve at the vintage KVOD, “The Classical Voice of Denver.” Having spent a dozen years as announcer/producer at the station, OLLI instructor Betsy Schwarm brings not just the music to OLLI, but also the spirit of the occasion. In a two-hour celebration via Zoom, all nine symphonies will be heard in excerpts. Never fear: the most famous bits will be there, as well as the complete Ode to Joy. Sing along, if you like! It’s an afternoon celebration, so it won’t interrupt any evening plans you may have. An Ode to Joy for New Year’s Eve with Betsy Schwarm – and OLLI!
Join OLLI On Campus Instructor, Betsy Schwarm for an afternoon of classical music on New Years Eve afternoon from 1:00-3:00 pm! Free.
