03/12/2014 On March 31st 1732 in a small village by the name of Roharau, in Austria next to the border of Hungary, a young boy by the name of Franz Joseph Haydn, who would turn out to be a famous composer, was born to the parents of Mathias Haydn and Anna Maria Koller. Franz was one of the parents three boy children. Mathias Haydn was a professional master wheelwright who loved music. He was a harp player. He worked as a wheelwright in the Austrian village of Rohrau, and was also a maktrichter, an office akin to village mayor. (Citation) In 1717 Mathias left Hainburg on a traditional travels of the journey man. (citation). In 1727 it was his last return and he built himself a house and married to Maria Koller at the age of twenty-one. Maria was an undercook in the palace of Count Harrach, the aristocratic patron of Rohrau. In addition she also sang along to the melodies while Mathias would play the harp. As a young boy growing up Haydn’s parents could see that he was cut out for music at a very tender age. During this period in their life they were very poor and were also from a very poor place. They could not afford for their son Franz to go ahead with his music lessons or his career. He could not get the education he needed to move along from his parents and he basically had no education to an extent. It has been stated that there were no public schools in the 18th century of Europe and if a child showed talent or intellectual promise then it would have not been uncommon for the parents to give away the child to a guardian with the necessary helpful resources that would provide the child with the education they needed to go ahead,(citation) In this case this was what happened to Haydn. His parents could not provide the necessities and had to give him over to a guardian. They quickly realized there was no way out of a tiny poor village for Franz to succeed. (citation). At the age of six, Haydn’s parents handed him over to a choir master by the name of

IUP’s Symphonic Orchestra. For seven years, I myself played the violin and performed in our school’s orchestra concerts twice a year. Attending this performance was a blast from the past- kind of. Although lovely, it caught me off guard. In all my years, the strings were always the center of attention and usually not accompanied by other instruments. It was a pleasant surprise.
The concert overall was a very enjoyable experience. The only downfall was how long it lasted; my attention span was not exactly….
