“On Saturday mornings at Boston Latin School from September through May, the halls echo with the voices of about 200 young singers, the students of Handel and Haydn Society’s Vocal Arts Program,” writes Zoë Madonna in Thursday’s (4/11) Boston Globe. “They range in age from 8 to 18.… On May 3 and 5, the program’s two most advanced high school-age groups … will join the Handel and Haydn Society Orchestra and Chorus to perform Mozart’s Requiem under the baton of H+H artistic director Harry Christophers, performing in most of the landmark work’s choral movements.” Kevin McDonald, conductor of H+H’s Young Men’s Chorus, states, “One of the absolute spectacular things that the Handel and Haydn Society is able to offer is an opportunity to perform with professionals considered to be at the top of their fields. And the organization has worked hard to open up opportunities…. The students truly understand what a special opportunity this is to sing with the Handel and Haydn Society at Symphony Hall, one of the most storied concert halls in the world. It is something that becomes a musical highlight, not just of the year, but for the rest of their lives.”
