Saturday's performance is almost sold out. Seating availability is limited.

In 1989 the Berlin Wall came down and American conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein traveled to Berlin to conduct a celebratory concert. His composer of choice? Beethoven. Ludwig van Beethoven and Leonard Bernstein were lifelong champions of two things: music and liberty. All season long, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra celebrates the "LBs." Join guest conductor Peter Oundjian for the toe-tapping ballet Fancy Free by the 25-year-old Leonard Bernstein, and for the last piece Bernstein conducted before his death at 72, Beethoven's Seventh Symphony. And be amazed by ASO Concertmaster David Coucheron's performance of the Saint-Saëns Violin Concerto.
