Beethoven 250 Houston 2020 brings the worldwide celebration of the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig von Beethoven—one of the great figures in the history of Western art, born in 1770 in Bonn, Germany - to the city of Houston in February 2020. Two weeks of concerts and symposia on the University of Houston campus will include performances of Beethoven’s music by internationally renowned guest artists with Moores School of Music faculty and students; a three-day symposium hosted by the Texas Society for Music Theory and the Southwest Chapter of the American Musicological Society and including recent scholarship on the music of Beethoven; and appearances by six of the world’s leading Beethoven scholars for lectures, keynote addresses, workshops, and seminars.

Performances take place on the University of Houston campus in Moores Opera House, Moores School of Music Room 160 and Dudley Recital Hall. See specific performance locations and times here.
