No work of sacred choral music has won the hearts of audiences and performers like Handel’s Messiah. Since its 1742 premiere, Messiah has been a centerpiece of Christmas and Easter celebrations around the world. At Saint Thomas, it is a much-loved Christmas tradition. The New Yorker notes that “The Saint Thomas Choir offers a Messiah of impeccable musicality and taste.”
This year features Amanda Forsythe, soprano, Christopher Ainslie, countertenor, Dann Coakwell, tenor, and Jason Hardy, bass.
Tickets are going fast for both Messiah dates, as well as for the December 19 performance of Britten’s Ceremony of Carols and Rutter’s Dancing Day.
