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. Join the Dayton Philharmonic, Dayton Philharmonic Chamber Chorus, and exquisite soloists in December for this glorious choral masterpiece.
