REPERTOIRE

BEETHOVEN: Symphony No. 3 in E-flat Major, Op. 55: Eroica

ABOUT

Steve Hackman’s Beethoven vs. Coldplay transforms Ludwig van Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony into an oratorio, weaving the melodies and lyrics of Coldplay into the original Beethoven and pairing them together based on content and context. Three vocalists join the full symphony; many of Coldplay’s most well-known songs are interpolated, including "Fix You," "Paradise" and "The Scientist." 

Steve Hackman’s Beethoven vs. Coldplay is a Stereo Hideout production, created and arranged by Steve Hackman.

This concert is part of the San Diego Symphony's season-long celebration of Beethoven's 250th birthday.

The Flower Fields

Mar 15 - May 9, 2021

For more than sixty years, Mother Nature has transformed the rolling hills of North San Diego County into one of the most spectacular and coordinated displays of natural color and beauty anywhere in the world. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up the Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch in Carlsbad, California, are in bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year - from early March through early May - literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, also is one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring here in Southern California.
