Tattoo-ode to Joy!: Amazing Fan Pic

After our segment on Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, we had a Twitter follower send us the picture below, with this note: "Want to know what I think of Beethoven & his 9th?" The music minds on the On Point staff confirm that the bars of music in the tattoo are the actual "Ode to Joy" movement.

(Be sure to: Listen back to our whole Beethoven show, which included L.A. Opera music director James Conlon and music historian Harvey Sachs.)
