Classical Music Events

 

Dear Music Lover,

I am overjoyed to join the H+H family as your next Artistic Director. From my very first performance, I sensed something remarkable about H+H, and rarely found in standard classical music concerts. The musicians of the H+H Orchestra and Chorus approach every piece of music with a passion, vitality and freshness that makes it sound new, regardless of when it was written. This in-the-moment vibrancy reaches out and connects you, the audience, with the music, the musicians, the composer, and each other. The musicians and I feel your energy, and the connection is complete. It is exactly the kind of music I love making and it doesn’t happen without you.

I invite you to set aside time this season to join me and the musicians of H+H, to once again feel the special magic of live music — together.

Sincerely,


Jonathan Cohen
