December 16, 1770: birthdate of Ludwig van Beethoven. That was 250 years ago, and this year, the exact anniversary falls on a Wednesday. Lone Tree Arts Center will honor the occasion with a Beethoven-themed online Arts in the Afternoon program. We’ll welcome the Ivy Street Ensemble – flutist Cathy Peterson, violinist Erik Peterson, and violist Phillip Stevens – with concert host Betsy Schwarm for Beethoven’s Serenade, op. 25, along with music by current American composer Kenji Bunch, whose own Serenade for flute, violin, and viola was inspired by Beethoven’s. We’ll also hear duos, dance music, and a Beethoven work inspired by Mozart. You’ll have to provide your own birthday cake, but we’ll have the music, streaming it live to your computer. Please join our celebration of the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth!
