Handel Messiah

Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Harry Christophers lends his special touch to the last Messiah of his brilliant 13-year tenure as Handel and Haydn Society (H+H)’s artistic director. The masterpiece comes alive for the 168th consecutive year as the unrivaled H+H Orchestra, Chorus, and spectacular soloists perform this stirring music—played the way Handel himself would have heard it. High-wire arias, dazzling instrumental fireworks, and awe-inspiring choruses make it Boston’s must-see Messiah.

Presented by Ann and Graham Gund
