The Performance Committee of the Athenaeum is pleased to announce that Boston’s acclaimed Handel and Haydn Society is coming to Portsmouth to celebrate the City’s 400th. This program of music by Bach, Vivaldi, and others will feature concertmaster Aisslinn Nosky, principal flute, Emi Ferguson, and principal keyboardist Ian Watson.

H+H has been captivating audiences for 208 consecutive seasons (the most of any performing arts organization in the United States), speaking to its singular success at converting new audiences to this extraordinary music, generation after generation. Its beginning was contemporaneous with the Athenaeum’s founding.

The concert is free to all. A donation at the door of $30 per person or $10 per student would be greatly appreciated.
