Celebrate Beethoven's 250th birthday with a fun opportunity to test your knowledge of his composition style!
On Thursday, December 24 at 7pm PST, North State Symphony will premiere our third virtual concert of our 20th Season. Before our featured performance of Beethoven's Second String Quartet, join Music Director Scott Seaton for a brief discussion of the varying composition styles in Beethoven's early, middle, and late string quartets. Afterward, you can then listen to excerpts of his string quartets and try to determine what period of his life they belong and have an opportunity to win prizes!
There will be nine quartet excerpts for a total chance of nine points, plus two bonus excerpts for a chance of up to four additional points (if you can name the two bonus works!).
The quiz will go live at 7pm PST on December 24, and remain open until December 28th at midnight. However, we will rank winners by both the earliest and highest-scoring answers - so be sure to send your quiz in early!
We'll announce winners on December 30th. There will be one grand prize winner and up to three runners up. Winners will be notified directly. Prizes will be announced soon!
