“The Handel and Haydn Society has announced a return to live performances this fall … eight programs … at Symphony Hall and elsewhere,” writes A.Z. Madonna in Tuesday’s (6/22) Boston Globe. “The season juxtaposes many staple traditions … with several new sights and sounds… H+H president and CEO David Snead laid out the goals of the upcoming season: to celebrate artistic director Harry Christophers’s last hurrah after 13 seasons at the helm, to search for a possible successor while inviting numerous guest conductors, and to welcome back audiences with familiar favorites while also continuing the ensemble’s commitment to broadening the repertoire…. Guest conductors [include] Laurence Equilbey … Raphaël Pichon … Václav Luks … and Jonathan Cohen…. The H+H Chorus will also make its Carnegie Hall debut alongside the Orchestra of St. Luke’s and La Chapelle de Québec chorus [in] … Bach’s ‘St. Matthew Passion.’ … Concertmaster Aisslinn Nosky will lead … Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons’ and Jonathan Woody’s Suite for String Orchestra, a 2020 H+H commission that received its initial premiere online [and is] based … on musical themes by Ignatius Sancho, a writer and composer who was born into enslavement…. The orchestra plans to schedule additional events as circumstances allow.”
