Raising the Handel Bar

by

It’s been two years since Apollo’s Fire performed Handel’s Messiah and four years since Jeannette Sorrell conducted it. When the baroque orchestra and its music director perform the holiday favorite this weekend, they’re doing so out of affection, not obligation. “It’s important to us to keep it fresh,” says Sorrell. Her interpretation of the score hasn’t changed, even if the ensemble is in a “different place” than it was a few years ago. “It’s in our blood now,” she says. “All the things we do with the music, we go a step further.”
