The Power of Music:
Beethoven, Transcendence, Healing
2020 is the 250th anniversary of the birth of Ludwig van Beethoven and the musical world is celebrating. At Off the Hook Arts, we will celebrate Beethoven the composer, but also Beethoven’s relationship to suffering and healing.
While it is well known that Beethoven suffered terribly from hearing loss and that he composed much of his greatest music while totally deaf, his compassion for others and his use of music for healing and transcendence is less appreciated. Off the Hook Arts will bring together great musicians to perform music of Beethoven and his contemporaries, and music inspired by Beethoven, and also focus on suffering, healing, and wellness.
