The Plainfield Symphony Orchestra Stays Connected Via A Video Chat With Charles From Vienna

(PLAINFIELD, NJ) -- The 100th anniversary season of the Plainfield Symphony Orchestra (PSO) has been cut short as a result of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Although they may not gather in person to perform, they are eager to stay connected through innovative virtual offerings.

The PSO has produced a three-part series of video lectures and performances entitled Chat With Charles, including commentary from PSO Music Director Charles Prince. The series, which commemorates Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th birthday this year, features informative discussions and performances of the composer’s iconic Symphony No. 5 in c minor, Opus 67. The series is presented in three parts: Movement 1, Movement 2, and lastly, Movements 3 and 4.

From his home in Vienna, Maestro Prince introduces each segment with discussion about the composition and its structure. He also shares personal interest information about the composer, including historical, cultural, and political events that may have influenced the work. Musicians from the PSO also perform key thematic examples from each movement. At the end of each lecture, you may listen to the PSO’s outstanding, professionally recorded performance of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony under the expert direction of Maestro Prince. 

The Beethoven Chat with Charles is now available on the Plainfield Symphony YouTube channel. They invite you to visit them virtually and stay connected while learning about and enjoying a recording of one of the most famous and influential symphonic works of all time!

The Plainfield Symphony Orchestra is New Jersey's oldest community symphony orchestra, and it is the third oldest symphony orchestra in the United States.  Until theycan again safely resume live concerts, they invite you to stay connected with them through information posted  at www.plainfieldsymphony.org, their Facebook page, and on their YouTube channel.
