Don’t miss the historic final concerts of Harry Christophers’s 13 years at the helm of H+H. For this occasion, Harry serves up one of his specialties: Haydn’s choral masterpiece, The Creation, brimming with joyous, inspiring music to tell the epic tale of the genesis of the world. This will be a performance to be long-remembered.
The Creation’s miraculous overture plunges us into Chaos—formless and mysterious. Suddenly, we are struck with radiance as orchestra and chorus proclaim: “Let there be light!” You’ll hear winds, roaring lions, and Adam and Eve’s sublime love duet. The warmth and joy of the music declares: “And it was very good.”
H+H presents this powerful classic with all the freshness of its first performance, on the period instruments for which it was written. Don’t miss Harry Christophers’s farewell concert!
