Guest conductor Christopher Warren-Green led the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and Rochester Oratorio Society in a performance of Handel's Messiah in December of 2016.

The maestro is no stranger to the British royal family.

In an interview with WXXI's Julia Figueras, Warren-Green tells stories from his concerts for the Queen of England, including one tale of a harpsichord discovered in the bowels of Kew Palace he thought must have been played by George Friedrich Handel himself.
