PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) - The Paducah Symphony Orchestra is proud to announce the second annual “Beat Beethoven! 5K” Run/Walk at Noble Park (Shelter #10) in Paducah on March 16.
Pre-registration is currently open until March 14.
This event is not your typical 5K run - it ties in the famous music of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony and other musical education elements. At PSO Maestro Raffaele Ponti’s baton downbeat, participants will start as the famous opening notes of Beethoven’s 5th are played throughout the park. The goal is to complete the course before the music ends, therefore “beating” Beethoven. Prizes will be awarded to participants who “beat” Beethoven.
The “Beat Beethoven 5K” is in conjunction with the PSO’s concert, “Bach, Bernstein & Harmonica,” featuring harmonica player Robert Bonfiglio at the Carson Center later that evening of March 16.
