BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - The Paradise Symphony Orchestra presents Beethoven's 9th at the Historic State Theatre in Oroville Saturday, March 9, and will return to perform at the Paradise Performing Arts Center Sunday, March 10, for the first time since the Camp Fire. 

State Theatre Arts Guild Board Member Jim Moll told Action News Now during an interview with Linda Watkins-Bennett on the Noon News that this is the most significant live musical to be performed at the State Theatre in decades, with 160 musicians in all. The State Theatre just marked it's 90th Anniversary.

Conducted by Dr. Lloyd Roby, the Symphony will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, Opus 125. The concert will feature Paradise and Oroville Choral Groups performing Ode to Joy.

Dr. Roby, who also appeared on the Noon News, says that it will be a joyful concert of mankind in Oroville and a celebration of coming home and rebirth in Paradise.

First Responders have been offered free tickets,  with the most expected to attend the Paradise concert. Dr. Roby says that in addition to honoring First Responders and celebrating the resiliency of the North State, the power of music can continue the healing process.

While the selections will be similar at both venues, the Symphony will debut "March of the First Responders" in Paradise. It's a piece written specifically for that concert.

Both performances are at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20. For the March 9 concert at the State Theatre, tickets can be purchased HERE

Paradise offers $15 tickets for seniors and students. Children 17 and under are free with a paying adult. Tickets can be purchased HERE
