Beethoven was a prisoner to hearing loss, yet out of the silence came a limitless imagination. Fueled by principles of freedom and equality, he crafted the Ninth Symphony in an epic struggle between despair and transcendence to reach new heights with the words “all men become brothers.” Join Michael Tilson Thomas and the Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus for this glorious symphony performed in honor of the 70th anniversary of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
