A BAROQUE
CHRISTMAS

NEC’s Jordan Hall

There’s something special about Baroque music at the holidays – something that connects you with the magic, the mystery, the joy and the inspiration of the season like nothing else. To put you in the holiday spirit, we invite you to enjoy sparkling music for the season from Vivaldi, Bach, Corelli, and more, performed with H+H’s trademark verve in the intimacy of NEC’s Jordan Hall.
