Believe it or not, Ludwig von Beethoven “himself” will be appearing  in concert this Sunday, March 16th, to help a young pianist play his music as he meant for it to be played! Courtesy of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, this concert is geared specifically toward helping little ones fall in love with music.  Be sure to arrive by 1:00pm to enjoy the Musical Instrument Petting Zoo in the Alice Tully Hall lobby!
