Bach in Baltimore Presents Works by Joseph Haydn on March 1, 2020 at 4 p.m. at Towson United Methodist Church
Bach in Baltimore is thrilled to perform A Haydn Affair concert in honor of the ‘father of the symphony.’ We open with his glorious Heiligmesse, Missa Sancti Bernardi von Offida in B-flat major, a sumptuous mass featuring the full Bach in Baltimore Choir; soprano, alto, tenor, and bass soloists; and gorgeous instrumentation with oboes, clarinets, bassoons, trumpets, timpani, and organ. The afternoon concludes with Symphony No. 94 in G major, often called the “Surprise Symphony” for its unexpected “surprise” chord that bursts forth in the 2nd movement. Haydn’s beloved composition is full of funny jokes, including a musical flirtation between the flute and bassoon, and a “wrong” chord popping up here and there. You won’t want to miss our dynamic homage to Haydn! Tickets: $40 Regular / $42 Door
