The Akron Symphony Orchestra will be joined by the Akron Symphony Chorus for The Creation, considered as one of Haydn’s masterpieces. 

The Creation is one of the towering masterpieces of Western art as it evokes heaven and earth through images of sound. Haydn breathes musical life into birds and beasts, conjures landscapes and weather, and shows how “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”

Mabel Daniels’ Deep Forest, originally composed for chamber orchestra before Daniels rewrote it for a full orchestra, was inspired by the lovely New Hampshire woods. Daniels, alive with ideas for her miniature tone poem, reported hearing music wherever she walked. So much so, she wrote, that “I finally had to put it on paper.”
