cropOn Beethoven’s birthday, join Santa Rosa Symphony Music Historian Kayleen Asbo, pianist Emma Asbo and baritone Jason Byer for a candlelight concert in celebration of the life and music of a hero for our time, in a musical journey that carries us from darkness to joy. All proceeds from the concert go to the Scholarship Fund at The Bishop’s Ranch to provide summer camp experiences to children in need.

Ludwig Van Beethoven’s life is one of the most astonishing stories of all time. Through the sheer power of his determination and will, he rose from his grief-stricken childhood to become Vienna’s most famous and sought-after pianist, conductor and composer. At the pinnacle of his fame, tragedy struck again as he discovered his growing deafness. Despite excruciating pain, constant personal rejection and the terror and fear of the Napoleonic wars exploding around him, Beethoven found a way to pour his broken heart into his music, creating a pathway of hope and healing for all of us that led to a vision of universal peace and love in his Ninth Symphony.
