This year's version of our iconic performance of Handel's Messiah will include a new venue (Our Lady of the Valley in Easthampton, a performance space with many resemblances both visual and acoustic, to the beloved St. Mary's in Northampton) and a new conductor. Woodrow Bynum, who has performed with Arcadia on many occasions over the years as both soloist and conductor, will lead this performance with The Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys of Albany.
Arcadia Players' 2019-2020 concert season is made possible through the support of you, our patrons and donors,
our hosts Mount Holyoke College, Wesley United Methodist Church, and Our Lady of the Valley Parish,
our media sponsor New England Public Radio, WFCR and all-news WNNZ,
and in 2019 by the Cultural Councils of Amherst, South Hadley, and Hadley,
and local agencies supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
Arcadia Players is Ensemble-in-Residence at the Arthur F. Kinney Center for Interdisciplinary Renaissance Studies.
