Messiah by George Frideric Handel with guest soloists and orchestra
The immensely popular Messiah, by George Frideric Handel, is one of the most-performed choral works in American history.  For many, the Christmas season would not be complete without it, yet it was written as a Lenten/Easter piece, with the famous “Hallelujah Chorus” being heard after Christ’s death, resurrection and ascension.  Handel, himself, conducted or oversaw thirty-six performances of Messiah – always in March, April or May – and it is in that tradition that the Chorale is delighted to present this most-beloved of large choral works.  Join the Larimer Chorale for our season finale, a complete performance or Handel's Messiah with professional orchestra and soloists.
