Our March 23rd concert features a mass from the classical era composer Franz Joseph Haydn. Dr. Cooper, the Canton Symphony Chorus director, briefly examines how the great Classical composers danced the delicate balance between the artistry (and artifice) of 18th-century music and the church’s requirements for worship.
