The North Country Chorus and nine soloists sing Handel’s oratorio “Messiah” in their 72nd annual Christmas concert. The 80 voices of the Chorus, accompanied by a ten-piece chamber ensemble, are under the direction of Alan Rowe.
“Messiah” was composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel. After an initially modest public reception, the oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music. It is among the most anticipated classical works in the North Country Chorus’ repertoire.
Audience members who are familiar with the work will be invited to join in singing the “Hallelujah” chorus. Additional information is at NorthCountryChorus.org.
