Haydn Level - $120

Franz Joseph Haydn (March 31, 1732 – May 31, 1809) was a prominent and prolific composer of the Classical period. He was instrumental in the development of chamber music such as the piano trio and his contributions to musical form have earned him the epithets "Father of the Symphony" and "Father of the String Quartet".

Contributors at the Haydn level are thanked for their sponsorship with:

  • Includes POPS Annual Dues
  • Concert Program Recognition
  • Pioneer Orchestra Merchandise Credit of $10

Béla Viktor János Bartók (March 25, 1881 – September 26, 1945) was a Hungarian composer and pianist. He is considered one of the most important composers of the 20th century; he and Liszt are regarded as Hungary's greatest composers. Through his collection and analytical study of folk music, he was one of the founders of ethnomusicology.
