Outcry 2021 season
Despite all of the exciting plans we had for a Beethoven cycle in 2020, the Covid – 19 crisis stopped all music in its tracks. But in 2021, Outcry performed all nine Beethoven Symphonies in a festival celebration, Beethoven251, with every penny of ticket sales and donations going straight into the pockets of freelance musicians. Vital to the music ecosystem, we all wanted to support them as we emerged from the Covid crisis and raising their fees is the best way to do that.
Beethoven 251 – A festival of Symphonies in aid of freelance musicians and performed Beethoven Symphonies 1-8 in a week. Outcry completed the cycle with the 9th Symphony and Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture, Cantata for the Death of Joseph II on November 6th 2021 at St John’s Smith Square.
