OSL returns to Carnegie Hall with three concerts led by Principal Conductor Bernard Labadie. On October 14, Handel’s complete Water Music suite and Charpentier’s Te Deum. On April 7, OSL is joined by two iconic choirs and a stellar group of Baroque specialist soloists for a rendition of Bach’s towering St. Matthew Passion. Vocalists participating in the concert are Boston’s Handel and Haydn Society, La Chapelle de Québec, soprano Carolyn Sampson, contralto Avery Amereau, tenors Julian Prégardien and Andrew Staples, baritone Philippe Sly, and bass-baritone Matthew Brook. On May 5, Bach is featured again, alongside his 19th-century champion Felix Mendelssohn, in a program with two special guests: frequent OSL collaborator and violin superstar Augustin Hadelich, and Grammy-nominated countertenor Reginald Mobley, making his Carnegie Hall debut in his first performance with the OSL.
