Boston Baroque opens its season with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 alongside his “Coriolan” Overture and “Elegiac Song.”

The performances will take place on Oct. 13, 14, and 15 at Sanders Theatre in Cambridge, GBH’s Calderwood Studio in Brighton, and NEC’s Jordan Hall in Boston.

The Oct. 15 performance will also be live streamed on the global streaming platform IDAGIO, welcoming virtual audiences around the world alongside live studio audiences onsite.

Founding Music Director Martin Pearlman said, “When we first performed Beethoven’s Ninth, it was one of the major milestones that showed how far period-instrument performance in America had come. It’s wonderful to return to this colossal work now to launch Boston Baroque’s second half-century.”

The performance will star soprano Heidi Stober, mezzo-soprano Daniela Mack, tenor William Burden, and bass Eric Owens in his company debut. Founding Music Director Martin Pearlman will conduct the program.
