Concert Postponed until 2015-16

Susanna by Handel

Bridging the genres of oratorio and ballad opera, Handel’s intriguing Susanna originally premiered at Covent Garden in 1749. Based on an Apocryphal chapter from the biblical Book of Daniel, Susanna tells the story of a virtuous young woman who is falsely accused of sexual promiscuity by two lecherous elders. Aided by the boy prophet Daniel, the true nature of the elders is exposed and Susanna is proven innocent. 

We regret that due to illness within the cast, The Collegiate Chorale has had to postpone this performance of Handel’s Susanna at Town Hall from February 3, 2015 to our 2015/16 season. If you are a ticket buyer, please return to point of purchase for a refund. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause you, and hope you will join us for the rescheduled performance, with date and time to be confirmed. The rescheduled program will feature the same terrific cast: Isabel Leonard, Daniela Mack, Javier Abreu, and Zachary James, accompanied by Orchestra of St. Luke’s.  Read the full press release.
