Beat Beethoven 5K
March 11, 2017
Beat Beethoven 5K 2017 will take place on Saturday, March 11 at Red Mountain Park. Beat Beethoven 5K will be a fun and exciting approach to the traditional race – the members of the Alabama Symphony Youth Orchestra will be on-site performing Beethoven’s music as the participants try to “out-run” the orchestra and Beat Beethoven! This presents a unique race day experience as well as an exciting performance for the students.
The Alabama Symphony Youth Orchestra is an ensemble dedicated to giving young musicians in the state of Alabama the opportunity to learn and grow through the rehearsal and performance of great orchestral music in a highly professional setting. Members of the ASYO rehearse regularly with the musicians and conductors of the ASO and perform concerts spanning from standard orchestral repertoire to pops and chamber music. The ASYO is open to students ages 12-22 and currently consists of 70 young musicians from 8 Alabama counties and 25 schools.
