Haydn’s The Creation

Thu Mar 30 — Sat Apr 1, 2023

Orchestra Hall

More than two decades have passed since English conductor Paul McCreesh stood onstage at Orchestra Hall, and his return comes with an oratorio that has not been performed by the Orchestra in just as long. The Minnesota Chorale takes the stage with the Orchestra for Haydn’s The Creation, featuring soprano Joélle Harvey, tenor Robert Murray and bass-baritone Kevin Deas. It will be a joyful celebration of new life, community voices, and nature all together—a perfect program to welcome spring.
