Message from the Maestro

Dusty Francis

Dear friends of Ars Musica,

I look forward to your joining us for one of my very favorite holiday traditions: Handel’s Messiah. Each season brings fresh meaning and significance to this great work as the events of the passing year are considered through the prism of Jennens’s text and Handel’s music. More

Meet the Musicians

Join Ars Musica for one of Bergen County’s favorite holiday traditions! This year’s performance of Handel’s beloved masterpiece also includes beautiful settings of holiday favorites both old and new. Ars Musica Composer-in-Residence Joshua Groffman provides an original work sure to join the canon of holiday favorites. Take a moment and meet Ars Musica’s talented collaborators!
