Salem area audiences have the rare opportunity to hear Händel’s well-known Messiah oratorio in its entirety this 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 choir will be joined by four professional soloists and a baroque orchestra. Directed by Dr. Solveig Holmquist.
