Grand Harmonie's first orchestral concert of the season celebrates the 200th anniversary of the premiere of Beethoven's 8th Symphony, almost to the day! Performing on period instruments under the direction of Michael Ruhling, Grand Harmonie will also present a charming mini-symphony by Michael Haydn and a recently discovered horn concerto by Jean Baptiste Edouard Du Puy, with James Hampson giving the American period-instrument premiere.
