Brahms’ Tragic Overture seems a stern curtain-raiser for the concluding concert of the Santa Fe Symphony and Chorus’ 30th season. “In this work we see a strong hero battling with an iron and relentless fate,” wrote one of the composer’s early biographers. “Passing hopes of victory cannot alter an impending destiny.” More impending destiny follows, but this time leading to triumphant exultation: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, the international anthem of humanitarian striving. Tom Hall conducts the orchestra and chorus, with soloists Sara Heaton (soprano), J’nai Bridges (mezzo-soprano), Robert Breault (tenor), and Lester Lynch (baritone) adding their vocal powers in the finale of the Beethoven. Performances take place at the Lensic Performing Arts Center, 211 W. San Francisco St., on Saturday, May 17, at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 18, at 4 p.m., with preconcert lectures at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and 3 p.m. on Sunday (free to ticket holders). Tickets ($22 to $76) are available through the symphony directly (505-983-1414) or by calling 505-988-1234 and visiting www.ticketssantafe.org).
