Special Offer: Save 25% on Philadelphia Orchestra All-Beethoven Concert at the Mann Center, July 25

BeethovenMann.jpg
WRTI listeners! Here's a special offer to enjoy a night of Beethoven performed by The Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Center on July 25th.

If ever there was a musician whose battle cry was “freedom” it was Ludwig van Beethoven. His Leonore Overture No. 3 relates the heroic conviction of a woman to free her husband from certain doom. The Piano Concerto No. 2 was composed for his own astonishing virtuoso technique. And the Symphony No. 5 has become so much more than a symphony – its famous first four notes have been turned into a Morse code phrase for "victory." Its propulsive energy and journey escalate towards a finale that has long transcended the concert hall and given hope to oppressed people everywhere. Come to the Mann to hear again why The Philadelphia Orchestra is supreme in the music of Beethoven.

WRTI listeners receive 25% off tickets for the All-Beethoven concert on July 25th at 8 pm. Use promo code "WRTI25" when you order tickets online here, or call 800-745-3000.
