BPC Conductor Erin Freeman re: Handel's Messiah

 

After she conducts an afternoon performance of The Nutcracker at Shea's, the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus's new Music Director, Erin Freeman, heads out to OLV Basilica in Lackawanna to conduct Handel's Messiah. As she explained to WNED, Handel used musical forms popular in the countries where he lived: German fugues, Italian duets, and English anthems.
