HPO - Gemma Conducts Haydn


Hamilton’s Haydn Festival closes with an evening that features the musical voices of Haydn’s world. Our own Principal Bassoonist Eric Hall performs a work by Ignaz Pleyel, a contemporary of Haydn’s. This concert closes with his popular Symphony No. 88, a concert favourite, which offers the inventive spirit that made Haydn one of the most celebrated composers in Europe.

Arrive early and join us for the FREE Inside the Music: Pre-concert talk at 6:30pm.
