A couple of interesting facts are When Haydn was a teenager in choir, he cut off one of the kids pigtails in class. He got expelled from the school and the choir. The second one is Haydn performed in over 100 symphonies and dozens of concerts for string quartets. Another one is the Esterhazy Princes loved his music but still treated him as a servant. The last one is his fellow musicians called him “Papa Haydn.”
