About

Conductor Laurence Equilbey welcomes you to the sublime Seine Musicale for an evening in the company of prestigious lyrical artists. Camille Schnoor, Okka van der Damerau, Benjamin Bruns and Günther Groissböck take on the roles of soloists in the most famous of symphonies, Beethoven’s Ninth!
