For a well-spent evening filled with high culture this spring, visitors to Juneau, Alaska, can experience a night of beautiful classical music performed by local musicians. Many ears are familiar with the opening notes of Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 5,” but an opportunity to hear the whole piece live is a truly spectacular experience. The Juneau Symphony and the Juneau Bach Society will perform this symphony along with Bach’s “Cantata No. 60” and Berg’s “Violin Concerto” in early April.

The performances will be held at the J-D High School Auditorium on April 2 at 8 p.m. and at the Thunder Mountain High School Auditorium at 3 p.m. on April 3. For those interested in the production of classical music, conductor Kyle Wiley will be holding “concert conversations” an hour before each performance, during which guests can ask questions about the orchestra, the music and what it takes to be a conductor.

Tickets to the performances begin at $22 for adults if purchased online. Tickets can also be purchased at the door on the day of the show at a higher rate.
