Handel's Messiah

Saturday 24 November

Sat 24 November, 19:30-22:30


St Mary Immaculate, Cameron Rd / Elizabeth Street, Tauranga

This baroque-inspired performance of a seasonal favourite, Messiah, seeks to recreate Handel's original sound for small chamber choir and chamber orchestra. "Mr. Handel" makes his annual appearance to conduct the Scholars Pro Musica Chamber Choir who are joined for this highly-anticipated performance by NZBarok, New Zealand's professional baroque orchestra, and a fantastic line up of New Zealand soloists.

Members of the Scholars Pro Musica chamber choir originate from many parts of the world. They have sought and found the Scholars and come together to make glorious voice through the universal language that is music. The Scholars' annual performance of Messiah has become an annual tradition here in Tauranga. No other choral work has received such wide acclaim and universal acceptance. A timeless masterpiece, Messiah demands something of all who hear it as we strive to make sense of the world in which we live.
