I admit to liking bad music. I don’t listen to music all that often, but when I do, I’m perfectly happy listening to Top 40 stuff. I know that most of it is musically questionable, but I can’t help that I like it. I’ve tried listening to Classical music, but I can’t get into it. Maybe one day that will change. And if it does, I’ll have to check out the Handel and Haydn Society. They are based in Boston, MA, and they are “considered America’s oldest continuously performing arts organization.” They’re coming up on 200 years of excellence “in the field of Historically Informed Performance” (see here for a more in depth explanation). In other words they perform pieces “using the instruments and techniques of the composer’s time.”
Handel and Haydn Society’s programming seems to fall into two areas. They have Concerts and Events, and they have Education and Outreach programs. The two areas combine to help the Handel and Haydn Society achieve its mission “to perform Baroque and Classical music at the highest level of artistic excellence and to share that music with as large and diverse an audience as possible.” Having both an Orchestra and a Chorus helps them do an even better job of achieving this mission. If you’d like join in, take a look at Handel and Haydn Society’s Careers page. Right now they’re looking for a Marketing Assistant, a Development Assistant, and a Part-Time Telefunding Representative. If you’re a musician, you can check out their auditions info.
