On WCRB In Concert with the Handel and Haydn Society, Harry Christophers leads the H+H orchestra and choir in the unrivaled drama of Mozart's Requiem, plus iconic works by Bach and Allegri.

It's the concert that sparked a global sensation known as the "wow child." As the music echoed through Symphony Hall after Mozart's Masonic Funeral Music, a child's enthusiastic "wow!" warmed hearts and inspired a search for the enthusiastic concertgoer. Read about the story here.
