Whether you listen to classical music or not, we all know this famous music quotation: Da da da DUM! And when you hear it played by an orchestra, you're listening to it in the key of C-Minor. Does that matter? Why not some other key? Those questions and many others will be answered in an upcoming Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's concert where music director Jeffrey Kahane and the orchestra will lead the audience on a "guided tour" of the inner workings of Beethoven's 5th Symphony before performing it in full during the second half of the program.

It's all happening on Saturday, November 7th at the Ambassador Auditorium in Pasadena and we're giving away a pair of tickets (if you need them right away, you can purchase them here).

To enter, leave a comment on this post answering this question: “what was Beethoven thinking about when he wrote his famous Fifth Symphony?” The question is totally open ended, creativity encouraged. It can be as ridiculous and crazy or as scientific and researched as you want to answer.
