Join Auckland Choral to celebrate Christmas with the magic of Handel’s Messiah.
There are roughly a quarter of a million notes in Messiah and Handel wrote them in three to four weeks. From the moment of the opening overture the spine tingles with the sense that something special is about to unfold.
When King George II first heard the ‘Hallelujah’ from Handel’s Messiah, he leapt to his feet in excitement. We don’t expect you to do that – but we’re sure you’ll recognise the tune anyway. This is quite simply some of the most uplifting music ever written.
Handel confidently announces the birth of Christ with a radiant section that quotes St Luke’s gospel, ‘For unto us a Child is Born’. Then there’s one of the most famous pieces of choral music, the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, and ‘The Trumpet Shall Sound’. Now that’s how you do Christmas!
Experience the freshness, inspiration and joy of a truly timeless classic.
