Saturday, December 2, 2017 - 8:00 pm - Mechanics Hall
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.
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. You can also view the entire performance on YouTube HERE.
