Mandle Philharmonic presents Ode to Joy, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony "Choral," with an orchestra and choir totalling almost 150 performers on stage. Beethoven’s 9th is often regarded as the greatest symphony ever composed: the summit of his achievements, a masterful musical celebration of the human race, and a massive work that makes all who hear it feel better about life. ​For almost 200 years, the famous hymnal theme to this symphony’s finale – the ‘Ode to Joy’ – has symbolised hope, unity, and fellowship – across borders and through conflicts.  

​Mandle Philharmonic is the initiative of Mandle Cheung, a tech entrepreneur who took up the baton at the age of 70. The self-taught conductor, leading an orchestra of world-class musicians, has created an upstart ensemble that forges a new space in orchestral music, through which he can express his lifelong passion for music.
