A most magnificent annual event!
Handel declared "I think I did see all of heaven before me" when he composed Messiah. Centuries on, the power of this work still draws audiences annually.
This is an oratorio you must witness if not every year, but then this once. Telling the story of Jesus' birth, life, death and resurrection through music and solo arias, interspersed with parts of compelling chorus, Messiah includes one of the most famous pieces of Baroque choral music ever created: the rouisng "Hallelujah" chorus.
The QSO is delighted to welcome our Ensemble-in-Residence, under the direction of conductor Gordon Hamilton, to present Messiah in 2016.
