The New York-based American Classical Orchestra has just announced its 25th anniversary season, which features four concerts at “venues ideally suited to each program.” The season, titled “music as the masters heard it,” kicks off with a September 17 performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall and closes April 24 with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, featuring the Cathedral Choir and the choirs of Trinity New Haven and Trinity Princeton. Guest artists include harpsichordists Gregory D’Agostino, Raymond Erickson, and Lionel Party; pianist Vladimir Feltsman; soprano Kristen Hahn; and violinist Stephenie Chase. All concerts are preceded by lectures by Music Director Thomas Crawford.
