Get a jumpstart on ringing in the new year by experiencing the majesty and joy of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. Composed while he was almost completely deaf, it would become one of the master's most celebrated pieces of music, from the turbulent first movement to the final, triumphant choral "Ode to Joy." The Oregon Symphony performs the piece, just after entertaining the crowd in a first set that features cabaret singer Meow Meow. Meow's works have been curated by David Bowie, Pina Bausch and Mikhail Baryshnikov, and the New York Post dubbed her a "cabaret diva of the highest order." Together Meow and the Oregon Symphony create one of Portland's most fun ways to end 2015.
