For the 170th consecutive year, H+H reignites your sense of wonder and joy with the greatest story ever told in song. Our new Artistic Director Jonathan Cohen leads this centuries-old Boston tradition. Joining our resplendent orchestra and chorus are a slate of spectacular soloists, including John Holiday, “one of the finest countertenors of his generation” (Los Angeles Times). Without a doubt, this is Boston’s must-see Messiah.
