Welcome the holiday season with the Society’s annual performance of Handel’s masterpiece reflecting on the birth, death and resurrection of Christ, featuring the stirring “Hallelujah” Chorus.
This year, the 60-voice chorus will be joined by soloists from Pensacola Opera’s Artists in Residence program, as well as the Choral Society Orchestra.
First performed in 1741, Messiah holds a place as one of the best-known and most beloved works in the classical repertoire. It has played an important role in the history of the Choral Society, which grew out of a performance of selections at a meeting of the Music Study Club of Pensacola in 1935 and which has presented the work, at least in part, every year since. Audiences never fail to respond to the wide range of emotions expressed in the work’s varied solos and choral sections, including the familiar and inspiring “Hallelujah” Chorus.
