Spotlighting performances by string quartets and orchestra, the musical scope will span Haydn’s career from beginning to end.
On Sunday, April 7th at 4:00 p.m in the George and Sharon Mabry Concert Hall, the GCO will present Haydn’s symphonies No. 1 and No. 104, the famous London symphony. Music director Gregory Wolynec noted “we could not think of a better way to start this annual event than with Haydn’s first and last symphonies.” GCO Principal Cellist Michael Samis will be featured in a performance of Haydn’s 2nd Cello Concerto. Samis was featured in collaboration with the GCO in his critically acclaimed 2014 debut recording.
