This August, join members of the CFCArts Classical Choir as they showcase the incredible works of George Frederic Handel in an evening honoring one of the most famous oratorios in history. Delight in some of the best-known choral works from the Baroque era, including the “Hallelujah” chorus, arguably one of the most popular and best loved compositions of all time. Even now, over 250 years after the composer’s death, Handel’s Messiah still captivates its listeners as wave upon wave of choral voices swell through the auditorium, propelling the message forward with great emotional impact. We invite you to CFCArts presentation of the Messiah, featuring an eighty-voice choir and full symphony orchestra. You can hear why Ludwig Van Beethoven himself, citing the Messiah, said Handel was the “greatest composer that ever lived”.
