WELCOME FROM ARTISTIC DIRECTOR HARRY CHRISTOPHERS The 2013–2014 Season features a wealth of outstanding music. We will be stripping the cobwebs off some well-known masterpieces as well as introducing you to some works that deserve to be better known. Highlights include Bach’s Mass in B Minor, a work that showcases the Society’s virtuosity, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2, for which I am delighted to welcome back my predecessor, Grant Llewellyn, and Vivaldi’s ever popular Gloria featuring our youth choruses. I am particularly looking forward to bringing you a choral programme of music by William Byrd and J.S. Bach, both of whom were very devout men—although the former lived in constant fear of persecution. We continue our path to the future and the 2015 Bicentennial celebrations by revisiting our unique heritage with Handel’s Samson—we premiered this dramatic oratorio in the US in 1845 and its revival is long overdue. Alongside special guests including Grant, Richard Egarr, and young trumpet virtuouso Alison Balsom, we will continue to showcase our own exceptional musicians, among them our electrifying concertmaster Aisslinn Nosky. At H&H we have a body of exceptional musicians, both period instrument ensemble and chorus, who revel in great music and, above all, bring the music of our heritage to life. I look forward to welcoming you to our concerts and reveling in the music with you.

2015 BICENTENNIAL: 200 YEARS OF BRINGING MUSIC TO LIFE H&H’s 2015 Bicentennial will be a celebration of the people of Boston—a reflection upon 200 years of musical innovation and education that embody the cultural heritage of the city. H&H has a rich history of introducing great works of music to America, and has been an integral part of many moments in US history. From the US premiere of Handel’s Messiah in 1818, to a performance at President Lincoln’s memorial service in 1865, to the creation of its education program in 1985, H&H has contributed to the American performance tradition. Bicentennial festivities will include a free outdoor performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, a work whose 1864 Boston premiere featured the H&H Chorus. Throughout the year, H&H will showcase the rich history and vibrant future of the organization through exhibits, lectures, free concerts, and more. For more information, visit handelandhaydn.org/bicentennial.

Levy Educational Outreach Program provides music education to 10,000 children annually in communities throughout eastern Massachusetts.

Almost two centuries later, H&H continues to foster Mr. Mason's legacy of providing students, mainly in underserved communities, with the joys of classical music through a variety of accessible and participatory programs. 90% of program costs are subsidized by H&H to ensure total accessibility for families and schools.
