Classical music stations across the world are uniting behind peace.
On Thursday, March 10, at 6 p.m., CapRadio will join classical music stations throughout the United States and Europe — and beyond — in support of Ukraine and to promote peace as a testament to the human spirit. They will come together to broadcast part or all of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony at different times throughout the day.
Inspired by an initiative from Radio România, Beethoven will be heard in 33 countries at different hours of the day, in different recordings chosen by each broadcaster.
Cristina Comandasu, the editor-in-chief of Radio România Muzical, initiated the project. “In difficult times, we need to remember the symbols of the best of what we are and what we stand for,” she said. “And what better symbol than one of the masterpieces of the human creative mind, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, with its connection to the notions of brotherhood and peace?”
Join the #OdeToPeace campaign tonight at 6 p.m. at CapRadio.org or by tuning in to 88.9 FM the final movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, the famous "Ode to Joy," with text by Friedrich Schiller, which is a "celebration of the brotherhood of man."
