Graduate students from the Glenn Korff School of Music are celebrating Beethoven’s 250th birthday with a concert of youthful and lesser known works by the master at 7:30 p.m. on Sept. 28 via webcast.

Due to the pandemic, no live audiences are allowed in any recital halls, but a majority of the performances will be live webcast. Tune in to the Glenn Korff School of Music website for the concert to see and hear the live music.

Five pieces on the program include four works with without opus numbers, which were composed generally before Beethoven began using opus numbers to identify his compositions. A quartet of trombones, a duo for viola and cello, a solo piano piece, three “Irish” songs and a movement of a violin sonata will follow a brief presentation by Pamela Starr, professor emerita, on the life of Beethoven.
