A Handel Celebration

May 31 @ 8:00 pm - June 2 @ 3:00 pm EDT

Our 45th-anniversary season culminates with A Handel Celebration, a salute to one of the greatest musical dramatists of all time.

A true humanist, Handel responded to the beauty and chaos of the world around him, creating music that explores the full spectrum of our emotional experience—from the purest joy to the most poignant sorrow.

Guest soloists Amanda Forsythe, soprano, and Thomas Hobbs, tenor, join the choir and orchestra directed by Ivars Taurins, who has chosen some of his favourite arias, duets, and choruses from Handel’s oratorios, including SolomonHercules, Semele, and Judas Maccabeus. Together they weave a gorgeous tapestry that wraps up our milestone season.

A Handel Celebration will be recorded live for future release on the Tafelmusik Media label.
