Metalworks!

Inspired by our “Music for a Great Space” concert tradition, Handel Choir is teaming with the city’s finest brass players for an evening of uncommon extravagance and grandeur. Bask in the splendor of Gabrieli and Bach, revel in the joy of Rutter and Hailstork, and be the first to hear Maestro Bartoldus’s new arrangement of Verdi’s Te Deum, the romantic master’s Opus Ultimum.
