The Haydn Concert Calendar has been updated to reflect many concerts taking place throughout North America, particularly in August. Some highlights are included below. All events are hyperlinked in the description found in the concert calendar.


Summer Community Reading Orchestra at Eastman School of Music

Open to all area players of orchestral instruments (high school students and adults). This summer features popular and less famous works by Haydn and Mozart, and their contemporaries. Attention will be given to playing techniques apropos to conveying the broad dramatic language of late eighteenth-century instrumental music, and to stylistic understanding. Wind/percussion instrumentation will be different week to week, but generally requiring 1-2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, and timpani.
