The Worcester Chorus
Directed by Chris Shepard, The Worcester Chorus is one of America’s oldest and longest-running choral ensembles. Attending their annual performance of Handel’s Messiah at historic Mechanics Hall on the first weekend of December each year is a holiday tradition for many families and choral music fans in the Greater Worcester community and beyond.
The chorus will be joined on stage by vocal soloists and the Worcester Festival Orchestra.
Did you know that Worcester Chorus director Chris Shepard has a podcast series called “Conductor In Sweatpants” that covers fun facts and fine details about choral classics? Check out his episode on Handel’s Messiah below:

In any event, there was, as always, in Music Worcester’s presentation of Handel’s Messiah, a soul healing, community-building moment, for all listeners. The stupendous sounds of that music in the soft blue-white silk of Mechanics Hall, amid dark almost indistinguishable portraits on high, is surely tonic to overcome the despicable antics of our national politics.
