BOSTON (AP) — America’s oldest performing arts group is looking for a child who was literally wowed by a recent classical music concert.
The Handel & Haydn Society was finishing a rendition of Mozart’s “Masonic Funeral” at Boston’s Symphony Hall when a youngster blurted out loudly: “WOW!”
Boston classical music station WCRB-FM captured the exuberance on audio. The crowd can be heard bursting into applause for the child.
Now the organization founded in 1815 has mounted a search for the kid it’s calling the “Wow Child” — not to reprimand him or her, but to offer a chance to meet the conductor.
Handel & Haydn president David Snead is asking concertgoers to share the child’s name. He calls Sunday’s experience one of the most wonderful moments he’s ever had in a concert hall.
