“Haydn in Plain Sight” is a free, “non-concert,” choral event that gives listeners of all ages a chance to experience choral music in a way they’ve never heard (or seen) before.

Beginning at multiple locations in Balboa Park along El Prado, visitors to the park will hear madrigal singers as they spontaneously appear, find themselves carried away in a sing-along, and be ushered into the San Diego Natural History Museum (theNAT) to enjoy a multi-level, multi-sensory choral experience.

“Haydn in Plain Sight” is a dryly-witty construction by composer Rick Burkhardt, commissioned by the La Jolla Symphony & Chorus, and loosely based on Franz Josef Haydn’s “The Seasons.”

The fun begins near the Bea Evenson Fountain at the east end of El Prado walkway about 3:00 pm. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you hear the singing!
