MORE INFO. & Tickets

You’re invited to Bach’s Easter Oratorio. This awe-inspiring music evokes a powerful gamut of universal emotions—from laments and astonishment, to jubilation and victory, underscored by bright trumpets and drums—even dance rhythms. Opening the concert is an H+H premiere, the affecting Stabat Mater by Antonio Bononcini (1677-1726).

A special treat! The Handel+Haydn Youth Choruses’ New Voices and Treble Chorus will be joined by the Project STEP String Quartet for a pre-concert performance of spirituals and folk songs from around the globe.
