Messiah December 15 & 16

Handel's Messiah, December 15 & 16

“The Sublime, the Grand and the Tender, adapted to the most elevated, majestic and moving Words, conspired to transport and charm the ravished Heart and Ear.” So read the first-ever review of George Frideric Handel’s supreme masterpiece, premiered in 1742. To this day, the holiday season in the English-speaking world would be incomplete without a performance of Messiah. Soloists Amanda Opuszynski, Laura Beckel Thoreson, Brendan Tuohy and José Rubio join OSSCS and William White (conducting from the harpsichord) for two performances: Saturday, December 15 at Seattle’s First Free Methodist Church and Sunday, December 16 at Everett’s First Presbyterian Church.
