Salem Listening Club
The Music from Salem Listening Club will hear Haydn’s masterwork ‘The Creation,’ led by Peter Subers, on Sunday, January 26, at 2 p.m., at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, N.Y. In the 1790s, when Franz Josef Haydn heard Handels’s oratorios for the first time, he returned to Vienna determined to write his own. The libretto he used had been originally refused by Handel, but Haydn used it to deliver a masterpiece that ranks among his finest. Join us to explore this magnificent work. No musical knowledge is required, just a willing set of ears. The cost is $10; pay at door, or pre-register at hubbardhall.org or 518-677-2495.
