Coronation

Works of G.F. Handel & J.S. Bach

Atlanta Baroque Orchestra with the Cathedral Choir & Cathedral Schola
Julie Andrijeski & Dale Adelmann, conductors
Caroline Robinson, portativ organ

The Atlanta Baroque Orchestra kicks off its 25th anniversary season in partnership with the Choir & Schola of the Cathedral of St. Philip, Atlanta, to present Handel’s magnificent Coronation anthems Zadok the Priest and The King Shall Rejoice, plus his Overture to EstherThe Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, Organ Concerto (Opus 4 No. 2 in B flat), and J.S. Bach's Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D.  

G.F. Handel’s exhilarating Zadok the Priest opens the program. Composed for King George II and his consort Queen Caroline in 1727, this immensely popular anthem has been performed at every subsequent English monarch’s coronation, including that of the newly crowned King Charles III. 

The program features many of Handel’s most beloved orchestral works. Caroline Robinson, the Cathedral’s superb organist and an international recitalist in her own right, will be featured in Handel’s Organ Concerto Op. 4 No. 2 in B-flat Major. Bach’s Orchestra Suite No. 3 will enthrall audiences with its rich instrumentation, including the rare appearance of three baroque trumpets and timpani. This blockbuster concert is not to be missed!

VOCES8 - SOLD OUT

Draw on Sweet Night

Saturday, February 24, 2024 at 7:30 p.m.

A place inhabited by the moon and stars, by solitude, dreams, fears and prayers, the night has given us centuries of exquisite poetry and music. This nocturnal program features a wide-ranging repertoire stretching from Venetian renaissance composer, Giovanni Croce, to the contemporary cross-genre American Pulitzer Prize winner, Caroline Shaw, and rising young English composer, Kerensa Briggs. The sacred portion of the program takes us from the end of day into night, praying for God’s protection during sleep and giving thanks for Christ the morning star. The concert will also include selections from VOCES8 arrangements of pop and jazz feature swing tunes, ballads, and even James Bond songs.

Presented by Friends of Cathedral Music. 

Student, Senior, and General Admission tickets are offered at a $5 discount when purchased prior to the day of the concert.

Overflow parking with free shuttle service to the Cathedral is available across the street at Second Ponce de Leon Baptist Church, 2715 Peachtree Rd, Atlanta.
