Celebration of Christmas

We welcome Broadway star Lindsay Mendez for this concert that begins the holiday season for many in Annapolis!  A beloved local tradition and the longest-running holiday event in the region, this concert includes lots of your favorite carols “being sung by a choir” – a very big choir, the Annapolis Chorale – holiday readings, and very special guest artists who make this a must-see event.  Sold Out.

Handel’s Messiah

The Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus, the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra return to historic St. Anne’s Church for Handel’s powerful and timely masterpiece.  Nothing equals hearing this piece live in this beautiful, historic place right in the heart of Annapolis, including its famous “Hallelujah” chorus.  Four extraordinary soloists join us for this beautiful set of concerts:  soprano Jessica Satava, mezzo Catrin Davies, tenor Frederic Rey, and, from the Metropolitan Opera, Matthew Anchel. Messiah will be performed both Friday and Saturday.  The Sunday performance will include only the “holiday” portion of Messiah plus the Hallelujah Chorus and carols.   Seating is limited so get your tickets now.

Did you ever wonder “How Are Things in Glocca Morra?” or what happens under an “Old Devil Moon” or “When the Idle Poor Become the Idle Rich?”  Enter the irresistible world of two Irish immigrants who come to America and live with poor, goodhearted American farmers, southern bigots – and even a leprechaun! – in one of America’s classic and most original musicals, with a brilliant set of songs, Finian’s Rainbow is as timely now as when it was written.  Meet our cast.

Rachmaninoff Vespers
