Symphony, choral society do justice to Beethoven's works

Passion raged through the Maxwell Performing Arts Theatre on March 28 at the Augusta Symphony's next-to-last Masterworks II program of the season.Under the baton of maestro Donald Portnoy, the symphony performed the first and last symphonies of Ludwig Van Beethoven. The Augusta Choral Society joined the latter portion of this Beethoven extravaganza. It has been nearly 20 years since Augusta audiences have heard these works performed live. Beethoven's music did not come easily. Though he tried to make it seem effortless, it was a complicated endeavor.

And that is what those who attended the Augusta Choral Society's concert Feb. 27 at Sacred Heart Cultural Center got. The intent was to let listeners hear works for choir (or several choirs), brass and organ, placing them in different parts of the hall.
