Haydn The Creation
Inspired by Haydn’s trips to England, where he first heard Handel’s oratorios, The Creation is widely considered Haydn’s crowning masterpiece. Based on both the biblical Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost, the oratorio was premiered in the US by H+H in 1819 and hasn’t been performed by the ensemble since 2001.

Join us for this special concert, held in conjunction with the 2015 Chorus America conference, which will have Harry Christophers conducting some of his favorite choral selections in front of an audience of choral enthusiasts. This program surveys some of the most moving vocal music of the past four centuries, from the glorious counterpoint of Palestrina to the spiritual minimalism of Arvo Pärt.
