There are few greater hymns to the human spirit that Schiller's Ode to Joy, blazingly set to music in the finale of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony.
If you already sing in an amateur choir, come and join conductor David Corkhill and Southbank Sinfonia for a fun rehearsal and performance of this choral masterpiece.
All are welcome for the performance at 11.30.
To join in, visit www.southbanksinfonia.co.uk/ode-to-joy or call Hannah Horsburgh at Southbank Sinfonia on 020 7921 0378 by Friday 13 June.
