February 16, 2014
Considered America's oldest continuosly performing arts organizations, the Handel and Haydn Society (H&H) will perform with a select chamber ensemble from their Period instrument orchestra. The program will include several Vivaldi cello concerti, as well as arias and ensemble works by Handel, Purcell, and Durante.
Currently under the artistic direction of Harry Christophers, H&H has performed the American premiers of many great Baroque and classical masterworks like Handel's Messiah and Haydn's The Creation, and employs the region's finest period instrument players and singers, including many who represent the next generation of leading artists. Widely known through its concert series, tours, local and national broadcasts, and recordings, H&H presents its nine program series in Boston and Cambridge, making this a very special North Shore performance.
