Description

To open the season, and for our first time at the Maison Symphonique, Arion reunites with the Studio de musique ancienne de Montréal for a splendid, festive program! Andrew McAnerney and Mathieu Lussier present Handel's sparkling Music for the Royal Fireworks, with brilliant brass that can also be heard in the same composer's anthems for the coronation of George II, and in William Boyce's anthem for the coronation of George III.
