The Handel and Haydn Society, in Boston, has this week announced Artistic Director Harry Christophers will step down from the ensemble — effective from the conclusion of the 2020-2021 season.

“It has been an immense privilege to be the Artistic Director of the Handel and Haydn Society for the past ten years … the decision to hand over the baton has been a very difficult one – but I feel the time is right …” the 65-year-old conductor has said.

“I am a firm believer that arts organizations need to re-invent themselves every five to ten years … this is the perfect opportunity to welcome a new Artistic Director who can build on the outstanding things we have made possible over the last decade,” he has said.

The search for a successor has commenced, the ensemble has indicated.
