Event Study Day: Beethoven Symphony No. 8 with Joe Davies
Venue Dalston Victory Hall
Description Join upcoming conductor Joe Davies as he leads us through a day of Beethoven's Symphony No. 8.

11-4pm Conductor, Cellist, and Baritone Joe Davies is the conductor of the Oxford University Chorus and the Oxford University Symphonic Band. Originally from Cumbria, Joe is now in his second year at St Peter's College, Oxford, where he reads music and is a Choral Scholar. There, he learns conducting with Jeremy Summerly, singing with Nicholas Warden, and cello with Emma Ferrand. He has additional lessons in conducting at the Royal College of Music with Peter Stark.

Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93 is a symphony in four movements composed by Beethoven in 1812. He fondly referred to it as "my little Symphony in F," distinguishing it from his sixth symphony, a longer work also in F.
The Eighth Symphony is generally light-hearted, though not lightweight, and in many places cheerfully loud, with many accented notes. Various passages in the symphony are heard by some listeners to be musical jokes. As with various other Beethoven works, the symphony deviates from Classical tradition in making the last movement the weightiest of the four.
Please bring a music stand.
We will be having a shared lunch on this day so please feel free to contribute to this.
