HandelClearlakes Chorale presents Messiah as its Winter 2017 Concert, on Saturday, December 9 at 7:30 PM and again on Sunday, December 10 at 2:00 PM. The concert will include all Part the First and the majority of Part the Second and Part the Third for chorus, soloists and orchestra.

One of the most beloved oratorios, Messiah is traditionally performed at Christmas,  beginning with the prophecies of and story of Jesus' birth.  Less commonly performed, the work continues with the Passion story, which culminates with the Hallelujah chorus.  The resurrection of the dead and Christ's glorification in heaven is the subject of the final section.

Messiah was composed by George Frideric Handel from a libretto written by Charles Jennen. Handel, considered to be one of the greatest composers of the Baroque era, was German-born, although he spent the bulk of his career in London.

Please join us and experience this wonderful concert of this cherished work.
