The Handel and Haydn Society's season will be a "celebration and tribute" to composers Henry Purcell (1659-1695), George Frideric Handel (1685-1759), Franz Joseph Haydn (1732 -1809), and Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847).

The season highlights:
- Harry Christophers leading a program of Handel’s "Coronation Anthems," which H & H performed at its first public concert in 1818.
- A "Messiah" conducted by Paul Daniel and featuring four soprano Kendra Colton, mezzo-soprano Paula Murrihy, tenor Brian Stucki and baritone Brett Polegato.
- Grant Llewellyn conducting a world premiere of “Fanfare for Voices” by Thomas Vignieri, which was commissioned by the Society.
- A November program of Mozart and Beethoven directed by Richard Egarr.
- Two Haydn programs led by Sir Roger Norrington, the rarely-heard opera "L’anima del filosofo" and “Dr. Haydn’s London Academy,” which highlights the range of works Haydn presented during his career in London.
- A free, May 31 performance of Haydn's "The Creation" on the Esplanade.
