We begin the new year with a performance of Haydn’s monumental oratorio The Creation to mark the 200th anniversary of Haydn’s death. The Creation is often considered Haydn’s greatest work through its bold use of orchestral color, adventurous harmony, exceptional rhythmic and melodic inventiveness, and overall unity with an almost operatic vividness and power. Tickets available online.

AWESOME that you are singing with the group. Please say hi to Anastasia for me!
The Creation was THE FIRST choral piece that I ever sang (1994 MIT Concert Choir). EKohler, ADudfield and I had a blast.
trying to get my mom to go… break a leg!
