“Messiah” – Weekend of Performances

Nothing brings the true meaning of the holiday season into focus more than George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah.”

The weekend before Christmas, Live Arts Maryland presents a very special trio of majestic and powerful performances of this work at historic St. Anne’s Church (Church Circle, Annapolis).

This year, Maestro Green, the Annapolis Chorale and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra welcome a quartet very special guest artists for these performances, soprano Brandie Sutton, mezzo Madeleine Gray, tenor Andrew Owens and baritone Shouvik Mondle.

With three performances, you can create your own special holiday experience:

“Messiah by Candlelight,” Friday, December 17, at 8 p.m. includes Part I of “Messiah” (typically the holiday portion) and the majestic “Hallelujah Chorus” along with carols for the season.

Saturday, December 18, at 8 p.m., brings a special treat for true Handel aficionados and anyone who wants to know this work better: the rarely-performed full work, including Parts I, and sections of Parts II and III, including much loved choruses like “All We Like Sheep” and “Worthy is the Lamb.”

Sunday, December 19, offers a special afternoon performance at 3 p.m. that includes Part I of “Messiah,” the “Hallelujah Chorus” and a holiday carol sing-along with Maestro Green.

Whatever you choose, prepare to be awed by this experience!
