Our December concert offers a thrilling opportunity to hear Händel’s Messiah (Christmas portion) as you’ve never heard it before! Performed by one-per-part instrumental and vocal soloists, Carrettin’s rendition offers delightful aplomb, virtuosic clarity, riveting tempos, and meaningful intimacy. BBF’s resident ensemble, COmpass REsonance delivers a sparkling performance utilizing Baroque bows by the string players, chamber organ, and harpsichord.
Vocal soloists hail from Boston and Colorado’s Front Range—soprano Mara Riley, mezzo-soprano Claire McCahan (World Bach Competition winner), tenor Daniel Hutchings, and baritone Adam Ewing.
CORE opens the program with Corelli’s adored Concerto Noel, a masterpiece of the concerto grosso genre.
The BBF will observe precautionary measures and will communicate with ticket holders in the weeks prior to the concert, describing these protocols and what to expect.
