BOSTON, Feb. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Handel and Haydn Society will celebrate Artistic Director Harry Christophers's 12th and final season with nine subscription concerts at Symphony Hall and the New England's Conservatory's Jordan Hall and select other venues.

"In the upcoming season, we'll celebrate his legacy, showcasing the compositions he loves best and shining a spotlight on the H+H Chorus. It will be a monumental season."
The season will feature guest conductors Harry Bicket, Jonathan Cohen, Laurence Equilbey, Raphaël Pichon, and Václav Luks. Special guest soloists will include sopranos Amanda Majeski, Amanda Forsythe, Carolyn Sampson, and Mary Bevan; mezzo-soprano Catherine Wyn-Rogers; tenors Nicholas Phan, James Way, Jeremy Budd, and Robert Murray; baritones Ryan McKinny, Tyler Duncan, and Sumner Thompson; countertenors Anthony Roth Costanzo and Iestyn Davies; and bass-baritones Henry Waddington and Matthew Brook.
