Handel and Haydn Sings
Join us for this special concert, held in conjunction with the 2015 Chorus America conference, which will have Harry Christophers conducting some of his favorite choral selections in front of an audience of choral enthusiasts. This program surveys some of the most moving vocal music of the past four centuries, from the glorious counterpoint of Palestrina to the spiritual minimalism of Arvo Pärt.
