"The Virtuoso is going Virtual"


Lace up in support the Kennett Symphony and see if you can BEAT BEETHOVEN....virtually!! 

Have some fun as you try to finish your run before the last chords of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony.  Need a refresher??  Find it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PNpyRBVTavQ

Along with the virtual 5K run, there's a virtual 1-mile walk, and a Beethoven's Birthday Kids-Dash (6-under)! Beethoven is celebrating his 250th birthday this year and his Birthday Kids-Dash is free to celebrate for all 6-unders!

Besides having fun and raising funds in support of the Kennett Symphony, the goal of the race is to finish before Beethoven’s famous 5th Symphony finishes – approximately 33 minutes.

Course: Your virtual run or walk can be completed anywhere, and on any surface (trail, road, treadmill, track) anytime during the race dates.  Please practice social distancing and wear a mask if, where and when appropriate.

Swag: Kennett Symphony T- Shirt to all those who sign up 3 additional runners or raise $100 in donations.  Send us photos from your Run or Walk.  We’ll pick the top 3 photos that capture the joy of running (or walking) to music and we will send a T Shirt to the winners.

The Musicians of the Kennett Symphony have missed performing for you in 2020!!  Watch for our 2021 Concert Calendar.  See you at the Symphony

Come out, join the fun and support the KENNETT SYMPHONY which has been bringing symphonic music to Chester County for over 75 years.
