I have never been to May Festival before. But I am planning on making at least one visit this year. On Saturday May 17, May Festival is doing Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, sung in German. "Ode to Joy" will close the performance that night and I am giddy with excitement. As I have mentioned before, I am not a big classical music fan. But I think hearing Beethoven’s Ninth sung in German, in Music Hall, in Over the Rhine, will be an incredible evening. Individual tickets do not go on sale until April so I am debating getting a small ticket package now just to make sure I can get a seat.
