Vanderbilt Symphonic Choir and Vanderbilt Oratorio Orchestra

Tucker Biddlecombe, conductor

Creation, by Franz Joseph Haydn

With Amy Jarman, soprano, Thomas Mulder (Blair ’12), tenor, and Jonathan Retzlaff, lyric baritone

In the final student ensemble performance of this academic year, Blair’s choral and orchestral forces combine to perform arguably one of the greatest classical masterworks ever composed: Creation, by Joseph Haydn. Sung in English, the text is derived from the biblical account of Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost.

Featuring faculty, alumni and student soloists, the audience will experience Haydn’s famous oratorio through the simultaneous projection of video, artwork, animation, and useful information intended to guide the listener through this magnificent music. This multimedia experience will show deference to the biblical and cultural significance of the text, as well as the humanistic and scientific discoveries that have illuminated our universe in ways we are only just beginning to understand.

Presented with gratitude to the Landis Gullett Charitable Lead Trust for its generous support of the Blair School
