Dayton Philharmonic Special Event
Escape from the holiday hustle and bustle with the Philharmonic and Chamber Chorus and immerse yourself in one of the most glorious oratorios of all time, Handel’s Messiah.
Although Handel’s Messiah speaks directly to the gospel message of the passion and resurrection celebrated at Easter, this angelic piece has become a holiday tradition at Christmastime as well. With no distinguishable characters, the drama relies entirely on the communication of the story of Christ in words, as well as in the powerful, emotionally stirring, and at times heartbreakingly beautiful music of a composer for whom the oratorio proved a personal salvation.
With powerful and, at times, heartbreakingly beautiful music, Messiah and its popular “Hallelujah Chorus” has become a beloved holiday tradition featuring orchestra, chorus, and soprano, mezzo-soprano, tenor, and bass soloists. Join the Dayton Philharmonic at The Schuster to experience this glorious choral masterpiece!
