Salem area audiences have the
Salem area audiences have the rare opportunity to hear Händel’s well-known Messiah oratorio in its entirety during Festival Chorale Oregon’s 39th season. The complete work, which tells the story of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ, takes about 3 hours to perform. To spare our audience such a marathon concert, we are dividing the work into two concerts. Part 1 focuses on the prophecy and birth of Christ, known as the messiah. The 100-voice chorale will be joined by four professional soloists and a baroque orchestra, under the baton of Dr. Solveig Holmquist.
See the website for more information on season tickets discounts. Season includes Sing We Now of Christmas and Handel’s Messiah (Parts 1, 2 & 3). All shows start at 4:00 pm.
SHOWS: $25, SENIOR $20, STUDENTS $10
