Handel: Messiah

7:30 pm on Friday, December 7, 2012
New England Conservatory’s Jordan Hall 30 Gainsborough Street, Boston
Boston Baroque gave Boston’s first period-instrument performances of Handel’s glorious oratorio in 1981, and the work has become an annual tradition at the holidays for many members of Boston Baroque’s audience. This year the orchestra and chorus are joined by three soloists who perform frequently with the ensemble — soprano Mary Wilson, mezzo-soprano Ann McMahon Quintero, and baritone Andrew Garland — as well as tenor John McVeigh, who is making his debut with Boston Baroque. Subscriptions for the 2012-2013 season start at just $66 for a three-concert package, to a maximum of $380 for all five concerts in the top seating category.
