April 16, 2012 at 7:45 am Leave a comment

The Handel Choir of Baltimore is presenting one of its namesake’s most famous works, Semele, which is Handel’s take on the story from Greek mythology about the mother of Bacchus, the god of wine.  Artistic Director Melinda O’Neal will conduct the chorus and orchestra and a large cast of soloists at the Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore on Saturday night.

Today, Tom talks about the music and the myth behind it with Melinda O’Neal, and with Tom McCreight, a Loyola University of Maryland classics professor who sings in the Handel Choir.

Handel Choir of Baltimore’s presentation of Semele is Saturday at 7:30pm at the Church of the Redeemer in Baltimore. It will be preceded at 6:30 by a lecture from Towson University music professor Carl B. Schmidt and Johns Hopkins art history professor Stephen Campbell. Tickets are available at 410.366.6544 or online.
