The grand finale will be an open-air concert of the Ninth Symphony featuring a choir of more than 200 elements from the region. It will be held on Sunday, 9 June at 9 pm at LAC main square (free event). A modern approach that will converse with Mauricio Kagel's revolutionary vision and with an intriguing exploration of the role of Beethoven's music in contemporary media, curated by composer Andrea Molino, through a multimedia installation in the foyer of the LAC. Irreverent and impromptu fragments of Kagel’s movie ludwig van will accompany Beethoven great symphonies. The majestic organisation involves numerous institutions of the Swiss Italian-speaking region.  

Each student can ask for a maximum of two tickets per evening. Please note that USI professors can benefit from the Amici dell’OSI rates.
