What do you program for the final masterworks concert of the 100th season of a symphony orchestra?

It would be hard to improve on the Regina Symphony Orchestra’s answer to that question: Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.

Every movement has iconic moments, and (in my opinion) if Beethoven had written nothing else in his life but the final movement, it would have been enough.
