Messiah_soloists_2017

Soprano Amanda Opuszynski, mezzo-soprano Melissa Plagemann, tenor Brad Benoit and baritone Benjamin Sieverding join OSSCS as music director Clinton Smith conducts Georg Frideric Handel’s most celebrated oratorio, Messiah. For four decades, audiences have delighted in our complete presentations. This season we once again offer two performances: one in Seattle and a second in Everett.

Tickets for both performances will be available at the door, beginning one hour prior to each concert.
