FROM PAUSE TO PLAY

The waiting is over. Soon, woodwinds will whisper. Strings will soar. Voices will sparkle. And great masterpieces will be reborn. In no time, we’ll be in the company of old friends. Reunited with our favorite music and musical virtuosos. With our universally acclaimed chorus and esteemed conductors from around the world.

It’s time to reconnect with the Baroque and Classical music we love. The music we have missed. The music that has missed us.
