At a special 8 p.m. time at Oglethorpe University, the Georgia Philharmonic closes its 12th season with the Beethoven Emperor Piano Concerto, featuring Tim Whitehead, the young and sometimes barefoot, but always entertaining pianist. Beethoven’s piano concertos are known for their complex themes and challenging solo parts, and this one is no exception. Continuing the love-fest for Beethoven, the orchestra will also feature his Symphony No. 6, the Pastoral, well known for its lush depiction of beautiful countryside, making a perfect contrast to the bold piano concerto. This concert is co-sponsored by Oglethorpe University's Arts & Ideas at Oglethorpe series.Purchase tickets.
