Charleston Music Fest Artistic Director, Natalia Khoma, shares, “Ludwig van Beethoven is one of my favorites. And over the years, I’ve come to love his music more and more. In his music we can find all human feelings — joy, passion, sadness, melancholy, excitement and much more that cannot even be described in words. His music is pure, speaks directly to your heart and teaches you how to be better, kinder, more compassionate. It gives you hope and happiness and brings people together!”
