At the top of the opening concert for Beethoven's 9th, the Phoenix Symphony is going to pay tribute to the late Senator John McCain by performing an arrangement of Eternal Father, Strong to Save, the traditional Navy hymn. We will be able to work on it at next Monday's rehearsal.
This will mean that we perform onstage at the top of the program, retire back downstairs for the remainder of the first half of the concert, then come back to the stage during intermission to perform the B9.
Tito found a recording of Eternal Father, Strong to Save:
(It should be cued up; but, if it isn't, the piece begins at 1h22m22s)
