CELEBRATE THIS FESTIVAL!
MARCH 21, 2020 | 8PM | CATHEDRAL CHURCH OF SAINT PAUL, BOSTON, MA $60 / 40 GENERAL, $25 STUDENTS AND SENIORS
Taking celebratory odes from two occasions: The birthday of Purcell's favorite monarch, Queen Mary and the patron saint of music, Cecilia, the HPSOB will present “Celebrate this Festival.” by Henry Purcell and ”The Glorious Day is come” by John Blow. This concert also will hint at our plans for premiering new works in future seasons, with a premiere of a contemporary composition for baroque orchestra by composer Adam Jacob Simon. This 2019 setting of John Dryden’s “Ode to Saint Cecilia,” foreshadows the HPSOB’s plan to hold a bi-annual celebration of the St. Cecilia day, commissioning or premiering a new work each year dedicated to the patron saint.
