CROSSING THE DEEP

June 1 + 4

Overview

H+H is proud to present this premiere event. Two hundred fifty years ago, European composers were writing music inspired by the Bible. At the same time, enslaved Africans in America were inventing a new art form—the spiritual—from the same texts. H+H takes you on a dramatic—and revelatory—journey exploring the shared wealth of Old and New World music—from cherished spirituals to Handel’s uplifting anthems and more. Truly a tribute to the universal power of music!

Subscribers get early access to tickets for this noteworthy occasion. Single tickets will go on sale in late August.
