TMAF is very excited to announce our participation in the Global Ode to Joy celebration of Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary.
This summer, TMAF was proud to be one of the few festivals that was able to carry on the tradition of classical music despite the COVID-19 pandemic, continuing to have teacher-student mentoring, chamber music making, and orchestra performances for live audiences in a full house concert hall. Music is alive among us despite the chaos of the world.
We salute to Beethoven, and we celebrate the joy of music!
