Art preview: "Beethoven's Fifth Symphony" is a must-see live experience

Jesse Tigges, Columbus Alive

The Columbus Symphony and renowned violinist Ilya Gringolts (pictured) present perhaps the most-recognized work in classical music for only two performances this weekend.

Most should know Beethoven's decisive work, but seeing it performed live is an experience everyone - especially those unfamiliar with the beauty and eloquent power of classical - should have.

Ohio Theatre

8 p.m. Thursday and Friday, Nov. 15-16
