Biography

Boston’s Grammy-winning Handel and Haydn Society (H+H) performs Baroque and Classical music with a freshness, vitality, and creativity that inspires all ages. H+H has been captivating audiences for 208 consecutive seasons (the most of any performing arts organization in the United States), reflecting its singular success at converting new audiences to this extraordinary music, generation after generation. After 13 years as artistic director, Harry Christophers has been named H+H’s conductor laureate. Jonathan Cohen has recently been announced as his successor, to begin in the fall of 2023. H+H performed the Hallelujah! chorus from Handel’s Messiah in the Society’s first concert, in 1815, gave the American premiere in 1818, and ever since has been a musical and civic leader in the Boston community. Today, H+H’s Orchestra and Chorus delight more than 50,000 listeners annually with a nine-week subscription series at Boston’s Symphony Hall and other leading venues. Through the Karen S. and George D. Levy Education Program, H+H supports seven youth choirs of singers in grades 2–12, and provides thousands of complimentary tickets to students and communities throughout Boston, ensuring the joy of music is accessible to all. H+H’s numerous free community concerts include an annual commemoration, in collaboration with the Museum of African American History, of the original 1863 Emancipation Proclamation concert on December 31 of every year. H+H has released 16 CDs on the CORO label and has toured nationally and internationally. In all these ways, H+H fulfills its mission to inspire the intellect, touch the heart, elevate the soul, and connect all of us with our shared humanity through transformative experiences with Baroque and Classical music.
