SCO CHORUS
GREGORY BATSLEER Chorus Director

Haydn's own story of quiet revolution is overshadowed by the now fabled accounts of his contemporaries Mozart and Beethoven – their tortured artistic struggles, their lives touched by drama and tragedy. Haydn was a natural, hard-working person, who strived to meet the many deadlines for commissions ordered by his patrons.
The Seasons depicts many aspects of rural life through the four seasons of the year. It touches on friendship and love, success and hardship, and reaping the rewards of harvest after manual labour. There are also celebrations of wine and a hunting chorus. The more solemn ‘Ode to Toil’ caused Haydn to remark that, though he had been industrious all his life, he had never before been called upon to write music in praise of industry.

AS NEWBIES TO THE ORCHESTRA AND CHORUS EXPERIENCE, WE DID NOT REALLY KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT. WE WERE COMPLETELY BLOWN AWAY BY THE PERFORMANCE, THE ENERGY AND ENTHUSIASM THAT EACH MUSICIAN PUT IN TO CREATE A BREATHTAKING DISPLAY. 2017 Concert Attender.
