Today we celebrate Haydn's 283rd birthday, a mere week after the Handel & Haydn Society in Boston kicked off its Bicentennial celebrations, complete with a mayorally-proclaimed "H & H Day" on March 24th. The Boston Public Library is hosting an exhibit about H & H through September 5th. You can read more about it via Teresa Neff's post over at Musicology Now.
As part of their Bicentennial year, the Handel & Haydn Society wiil be performing The Creation on May 1 and 3, 2015.
