Nicholas McGegan

Nicholas McGegan is a man of many talents and interests: an art aficionado, avid gardener and epicure, to name just a few. He’s also one of the most sought-after experts in baroque and early music — a conductor, harpsichordist and scholar. His zest for life is evident in everything he does, especially when he’s leading an ensemble in music he knows and loves as much as George Frideric Handel’s oratorio Messiah. Nicholas McGegan guest conducted the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and May Festival Chorus in Handel’s beloved masterpiece, and joined Sunday Baroque host Suzanne Bona in the studios of WGUC Cincinnati to discuss his work and Handel’s genius.
