Spokane Symphony's New Year's Eve concert will be conducted by former music director Eckart Preu

The Spokane Symphony's tradition of performing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony on New Year's Eve continues this week on Friday, December 31, 7:30pm at Martin Woldson Theater at The Fox with a conductor change. Former Music Director and Conductor Laureate, Eckart Preu will now lead the orchestra because the Spokane Symphony's current Music Director, James Lowe, is unable to fly to Spokane this week due to international flight cancellations because of Covid. The Spokane Symphony's tradition of performing Beethoven's Ninth Symphony on New Year's Eve was started in 2009 by Music Director Eckart Preu.

Beethoven's Ninth Symphony is one of the milestones of classical music. It features the beloved 'Ode to Joy,' and is dedicated to freedom, joy and brotherhood. At only about an hour long, it's perfect for New Year's Eve when people have plans to celebrate late into the evening.

Tickets are available at or call the box office at 509.624.1200.
