The Worcester Chorus Performs Handel's Messiah

Date: December 2, 2017

Presented By: Music Worcester

Under the direction of Chris Shepard, The Worcester Chorus of Music Worcester will return to historic Mechanics Hall to continue its great holiday tradition: a complete performance of Handel's greatest choral work, The Messiah. This wonderful performance has been part of Worcester families' traditions for well over 100 years - this year, make it part of yours! The first Saturday in December kicks off the holiday performance season! Apart from The Worcester Chorus, this performance will feature a full orchestra, acclaimed vocal soloists, and The Festival Singers: a group of Worcester-area vocal students coached by members of The Worcester Chorus leading up to the performance. In its 2016-2017 Concert Season, Music Worcester and The Worcester Chorus completed a fundraising campaign to record its performance of The Messiah from December of 2016. Charter TV 3 made the film and recording and will be streaming it on its TV channel this holiday season.
