Beat Beethoven

Beat Beethoven
After living in Kingston for nearly 8 years, I have never been available to take in the Beat Beethoven fundraiser for the Kingston Symphony Orchestra. Fortunately, I made it down to City Hall today where Kingston’s finest musicians played Beethoven’s Symphony No.3, while runners attempted to complete 4 and 8km courses. The turn out was exceptional, the music was divine and we documented every minute Beat Beethoven alongside all the race supporters. Check out the massive number of pictures from the event on our Flickr page, as well as videos of runners and performance on our YouTube channel. Last but not least is the unbelievable interview David Bailey, our resident podcaster, scored with Glen Fast, Conductor of the Kingston Symphony. The Maestro provides insight into the event, the composition of our local orchestra, and the arts in general in Kingston. If you missed out this year, be sure to mark your calendar for the 2009 Beat Beethoven run in Kingston.
