Spring 2020 Program

We will perform “The Seasons” by Joseph Haydn, with full orchestra and soloists, on Sunday, April 19, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church.  Though lesser known than its sacred partner The CreationThe Seasons contains everything audiences love of Haydn’s later works: an extended orchestra, large chorus, and vivid imagery. The piece goes through daily life and work in Haydn’s time from peasant characters, praising the land for its life-giving abundance.

Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held each Monday evening, late August to early May, from 7:00 to 9:15 p.m. at Grace St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2331 E. Adams Street, Tucson.

Rehearsals for our Fall 2019 concert begin Monday, August 19.
