"A Philipstown Messiah" at Saint Mary's Church, Cold Spring New York - December 21
Two special benefit performance of George Frideric Handel's Messiah (Parts I and II (abridged)) will be presented on Sunday, December 21 at Saint Mary's-in-the-Highlands, Cold Spring, New York.

The Philipstown Messiah orchestra will have 21 of the top professional period instrument players from the finest New York City orchestras, and the same size chorus, along with four outstanding soloists. These musicians have performed in the annual Messiahs at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, Saint Thomas Church, and Trinity Church. Many of the players were in "The Beggar's Opera" orchestra at the Philipstown Depot Theatre in 2012, with stage and musical direction by Gordon Stewart.

This version of Messiah was prepared and conducted by Gordon Stewart in 2013. Mr. Stewart was the publisher of the online and print versions of Philipstown.info. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Oberlin College, he also held a master's degree from the University of Chicago; a certificate in theater and music from the University of Vienna; and a master's in fine arts from the Yale University Drama School. He left theater and music to become deputy chief speechwriter for Jimmy Carter, followed by a distinguished career in the political, business, and international affairs worlds.
