The Keene Chorale presents Handel's Messiah
For its first full concert since 2019, The Keene Chorale will sing all three parts of George Frideric Handel's Messiah directed by Maestro Cailin Marcel Manson. The performance will take place at 2 PM on Sunday, December 12, in the acoustically grand St. Bernard Church of Keene, NH.
They will be joined by NERO, the New England Repertory Orchestra, and soloists Evangelia Leontis, soprano, Megan Roth, mezzo soprano, Joshua Collier, tenor, and Nicholas Tocci, baritone.
Messiah is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by Handel with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens. It was first performed on April 13, 1742, and in London nearly a year later. The oratorio first had a modest public reception, but it soon gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.
Maestro Manson promises to present a Messiah for the holiday season like none other!
