For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. This year, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra honors the joyous holiday season with a performance of this monumental celebration of faith and the human experience. The orchestra will be conducted by Nicholas McGegan, who has beautifully interpreted Handel's Messiah for over 20 years. They'll be joined onstage by the Philharmonia Chorale and distinguished guest soloists, who color Handel's various movements with rich tones and passionate intensity. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert as you thrill to the blazing trumpets, thundering timpani and a chorus of heavenly voices. Learn More

This performance of the RNO struck a magical chord with the audience! Their precision, vibrancy, and richness of sound resulted in a long ovation and encore. The young, extremely gifted guest artist's performance was absolutely AMAZING!
