Beethoven@250 celebration

Beethoven's 250th birthday is quickly approaching (December 2020)!

Ludwig van Beethoven turns 250 in December 2020, and we want to give him a special gift: a year of listening, exploring, and celebrating his creative genius. Your support will help the Beethoven Center and the American Beethoven Society create exhibits, plan concerts, and join in the festivities taking place all over the world. Our goal is to raise $25,000 by December 2018. Please click here to donate and select your thank-you gifts.
