This evening of thrilling music and conversation draws from Handel’s popular renditions of biblical narratives in the format of the oratorio— Imagine an experience somewhere between off-stage opera and a secular meditation on the role of the Bible in the age of enlightenment. You’ll explore key characters and their changing roles throughout history. You’ll also be inspired by the hidden relations between the Hebrew Bible, the librettos and the composer’s blisteringly brilliant music.
About Jews & Music (JAM)
Since its inception in 2015, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale’s Jews & Music initiative has taken audiences on journeys of discovery that deepen connections for Jews and non-Jews to historical, political and social contexts that inform the creation of music. Philharmonia is the only major American orchestra with a permanent initiative dedicated to exploring the relationship between Jews and music from the 17th to the 21st centuries.

Here’s how we’ll stay safe together
Bring your mask, vaccination card and ID. All attendees 12 and older will need to show proof of vaccination before entering the theater and are required to wear a mask during performances. Currently, mask exemptions are in effect for performers, who will only remove their masks when actively performing and will be socially distanced from audience members.
