BEYOND THE CONCERT HALL… 3 GREAT WAYS TO CELEBRATE THE BICENTENNIAL
BICENTENNIAL BOOK:Bringing Music to Life for 200 YearsA fascinating account of 200 years of H+H history, from its founding in 1815 and first concerts at King’s Chapel through its evolution as a professional ensemble focused on Historically Informed Performance. This book is full of treasures from the archives and personal accounts from two centuries of Bostonians.
Timed expressly for the Bicentennial, this is H+H’s first recording of Handel’s powerful oratorio since 2001 and the first under the direction of Artistic Director Harry Christophers. The double CD, recorded live at Symphony Hall in November 2013, is an essential addition to any music lover’s collection.
Both retrospective and forward-looking, this 52-page magazine traces H+H’s legendary past and lays out its creative vision for the Bicentennial Season. The Bicentennial magazine includes tributes from various dignitaries, a Q+A with contemporary composer Gabriela Lena Frank, and a user-friendly guide to Bicentennial events.
