Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" live at the Sydney Opera House
Over 800 singers from around Australia came together at the Sydney Opera House to sing Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" on Sunday 9 June 2019. ABC Classic presenters Vanessa Hughes and Damien Beaumont joined in this very special event.
The performance was a part of ChorusOz, run annually by Sydney Philharmonia Choirs to let people who can't commit to a regular choir have the opportunity to sing at the Sydney Opera House.
