Cantata Singers opens the 56th season with Handel's iconic oratorio, Solomon. Handel’s masterful recreation of the biblical story celebrates the wise King Solomon as a peaceful and prosperous ruler. Centered around the judgement story where King Solomon determines the rightful parentage of a child in dispute, Handel’s rich and triumphant music shines throughout, written for soloists, chorus, and orchestra.
A pre-concert talk, free to all ticketholders, will be given at 6:30pm in Williams Hall by Joshua Jacobson, founder and director of the Zamir Chorale of Boston.
Following the performance, all are invited to attend a free post-concert reception.
