It’s hard to believe we are in the last phase of preparing the two major works for our upcoming Händel and Haydn Festival. Performing works from the Baroque Period is part of the DNA of the Bay Choral Guild—a core part of our repertoire since our founding 40 years ago as the Baroque Choral Guild. As we near concert week, our excitement is mounting. We’re still polishing, but we hear each piece developing and rehearsals become even more enjoyable. As for numerous concerts in the past, we will be joined by players from the Jubilate Baroque Orchestra.
