Handel’s Messiah has been beloved by audiences since its 1743 sold-out debut. Anchored by the thunderous “Hallelujah Chorus,” it is a pillar of Western music – a masterpiece that must be experienced live. This October, residents of the Highlands can join in the magic by singing along.
Emily Isaacson, Artistic Director of the Oratorio Chorale, will provide a brief history of the piece and then will lead guests in an hour of festive and non-threatening sight-singing. Chorale accompanist Scott Wheatley and soprano soloist Mary Sullivan will provide piano support, and scores will be provided.
