On Saturday, May 21, 2022, the Phoenix Ivy Council is partnering with The Phoenix Symphony to offer our members discounted tickets to Beethoven's renowned and beloved 9th Symphony. Several artists will join us for a private Phoenix Ivy Council cocktail reception preceding the concert. The artists will speak to our alumni about the performance and meet with our members. This promises to be an outstanding event to connect in person with other alumni, while enjoying the musical offerings of one of our city's premier cultural institutions.

The private reception will be followed by two masterworks that have enthralled audiences for generations. The epic splendor of Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man was inspired by a 1942 speech by then Vice President Henry Wallace proclaiming the "Century of the Common Man." Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, one of the supreme achievements in music history, is a soul-refreshing inspiration. You will not want to miss this grand musical spectacle!
