Event description
Handel’s immortal oratorio—arguably the most famous choral piece by any composer—has been a staple in this country at Christmastime but is, in essence, an Easter composition. The Consort closes its season with a rare opportunity to hear Handel’s beloved work at a time and with the forces for which it was originally envisioned.

George Frideric Handel (1685-1759):
Messiah, HWV 56

Suzanne Karpov, soprano
Sarah Davis Issaelkhoury, alto
Kyle Tomlin, tenor
Steven Combs, bass

Pre-Concert Lecture:

2:00pm, Talking Bach is a series of free pre-concert lectures by noted Bach scholar Dr. Michael Marissen one hour before performances at National Presbyterian Church. The lectures focus not only on the musical elements of the work that will be performed, but also on the historical context in which the music was created. Talks are designed to enhance the concertgoers' appreciation and enjoyment of the music they are about to hear. The series is open to all ticket holders.
