The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is a Presenting Partner for this program.
Haydn and Mozart – the old master and the young genius – were two colossal figures of the Classical period. Come, hear and learn about two of their greatest symphonies! Over a number of years, these two composers developed an unusually close relationship, seemingly free from competition. Don’t miss this rare glimpse at the unique friendship shared by two masters and a comprehensive look at what makes their symphonies so great. Be sure to have students participate in the ever-popular Paint to Music Contest, presented in conjunction with this program; winning artwork will be projected above the orchestra at the concert!
