FEB 23 + 25


Boston music lovers, mark your calendars: Harry Christophers returns to H+H in his first appearance as Conductor Laureate, with the music he does best. Following a smile-inducing Haydn symphony, the spotlight falls on the renowned H+H Chorus for two of Mozart’s great masterworks. Then, Harry adds a special treat: haunting, sublime a cappella choral gems from two women composers, Hildegard von Bingen (1098–1179) and Raffaella Aleotti (1575–1646). Join us for this joyful reunion!
