By Francisco Salazar

The Boston Camerata has announced its 2022-23 Season.

“The times we live in call out so many feelings,” says Camerata Artistic Director Anne Azéma. “You can experience them all across our different concert presentations.”

The season, subtitled “Light and Shadow,” opens with a program of music for and around the great medieval cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris. “The Notre Dame music from eight centuries ago speaks of hope and persistence down through the generations,” comments Azéma. “Our theme via these works is not grief, but rather renewal and regeneration.”

Performance Date: Nov. 6, 2022

“A Medieval Christmas: Hodie Christus Natus Est” returns by popular demand, following on the success of Camerata’s recent recording for Harmonia Mundi.

Performance Dates: Dec. 3 -18, 2022

“Carols at Midnight” will be performed at the First Church – Congregational, Cambridge.

Performance Date: Dec. 22, 2022

Henry Purcell’s opera, “Dido & Aeneas” concludes the season in a collaboration with Longy School of Music of Bard College. Professor Ellen T. Harris (MIT) will present a pre- concert talk.

Performance Date: March 18, 2023
