Handel: The Messiah
Sun, November 25 @ 3:00 pm
Pacific Chamber Orchestra
Kick off the holiday season with a joyous beginning. Well-known favorites Christopher Bengochea and Eugene Brancoveanu are two of the four soloists. Chorus Master Robert Lappa again prepares the Pacific Chamber Orchestra chorus in this stirring performance. The audience is invited to join a sing-a-long encore of the famed Hallelujah chorus. Find out why being in the midst of harmonious voices makes this one of the best-loved musical experiences of all time. Unlike many choral works where the soloists are the main attraction, in the Messiah, the chorus equally propels the work forward with great emotional impact and uplifting messages.
