The little girl wasn’t “surprised”, she was part of the act. But what a way to bring in such a wonderful rendition of “Ode to Joy”. It truly is one of those pieces that always make you feel good.
Many thanks to all the members of the “Hans-Sachs”-Choir and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Nuremberg who took up our idea enthusiastically and performed it so well at the Lorenzkirche in Nuremberg on the 14th of June 2014!”
Ode an die Freude or “Ode to Joy” is best known for its use by Ludwig van Beethoven in the final (fourth) movement of his Ninth Symphony, completed in 1824. organized by Evenord-Bank eG-KG
