Handel and Haydn Society serves up another Baroque Brunch at Boston Globe WGBH Boston Summer Arts Weekend

Now in its third year, the midday program will include performances by soprano Teresa Wakim, Concertmaster Aisslinn Nosky, harpsichordist Ian Watson, and other outstanding H+H talent.

WCRB’s Laura Carlo hosts the Sunday, July 27 event at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

July 8, 2014 (Boston, MA) —  The Handel and Haydn Society, the Boston Globe, and WCRB bring back a fun summer tradition that is both to be heard and savored. The popular Baroque Brunch returns to the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston on Sunday, July 27 from 11am to 1pm.

The public is invited to join harpsichordist and director Ian Watson, Concertmaster Aisslinn Nosky, soprano Teresa Wakim, and other beloved H+H musicians for performances of well-known and less familiar Baroque music. This concert / discussion will take place on the final day of the Boston Globe WGBH Boston Summer Arts Weekend.

Works by Handel, Purcell, and Vivaldi are scheduled to be performed. The titles of pieces will not be announced until concert day to preserve an element of surprise.

“The Baroque Brunch is such a unique idea—excellent food, excellent music, shared tables with friends you haven’t met yet—and a whole lot of fun,” says WCRB’s Laura Carlo who will return to host the event. “I feel blessed to be associated with one of early music’s leading organizations in the whole world. To think that these exceptional musicians will entertain us while we dine in Baroque splendor. We’re not only ‘Boston strong,’ we’re ‘Boston lucky’!”
