Midday Music playlist for Thursday, September 11

I'm about to resume posting weekly lists of concerts. If you notice I've missed a performance GPB listeners would like to know about, please write (middaymusic@gpb.org) and point me to details. Note: Much as I'd love to provide one-stop shopping for every single classical event in Georgia, and valuable though student performances and church singalongs may be, there is a whole state to cover. Just concerts by pros, please. Thanks!

Concert-wise, it's all Beethoven at the CSO's Saturday concert; the Cobb Symphony has an all not-Beethoven program; the Valdosta Symphony plays some Beethoven and some not-Beethoven. Details are here on those concerts and others. (Today on the air, Columbus Symphony music director George del Gobbo introduces Beethoven's Fifth Symphony. Tomorrow please join Alan Cooke for Midday Music Requests.)
