New York, NY — January 3, 2024 — The 92nd Street Y, New York (92NY), one of New York’s leading cultural venues, presents Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra with Richard Egarr and Reginald Mobley: Garden of Good & Evil on Thursday, January 25, 2024 at 7:30 pm.

America’s premier Baroque ensemble joins with music director and harpsichordist Richard Egarr and countertenor Reginald Mobley, bringing their compelling program performed to acclaim in the UK. Centered on the creation story, Garden of Good & Evil pairs Handel arias with modern works for Baroque forces by celebrated composers Errollyn Wallen and Tarik O’Regan – jointly commissioned to write new music exploring aspects of the Biblical creation story in a project called Ancestor. Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra’s blend of authenticity and innovation, and juxtaposition of old and new is beautifully illuminated in this musical examination of the most profound of themes.
