For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. Handel's 1741 masterpiece includes some of the most joyful and memorable music ever written, and is the most performed choral work in the English language. For this year's concert, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Manze, will be joined onstage by the Westminster Symphonic Choir and a selection of distinguished guest soloists, including mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford and soprano Joelle Harvey. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert from the New York Philharmonic, which includes such favorites as "And the Glory of the Lord" and the "Hallelujah" chorus.

The SFJAZZ Collective is an all-star eight-piece ensemble that highlights the original compositions of its annually-rotating members as well as revisits and re-arranges famous compositions from past jazz masters. Having taken on jazz titans like John Coltrane, Ornette Coleman, Horace Silver, and Thelonious Monk in the past, the group will now explore the material of music icon Stevie Wonder, an artist outside of the jazz tradition, but one whose sophisticated song craft and timeless melodies are more than worthy of exploration. The Collective is comprised of saxophonists Mark Turner, Antonio Hart and Miguel Zenón, pianist Edward Simon, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, trumpeter Avishai Cohen, bassist Matt Penman, trombonist Robin Eubanks, and drummer Eric Harland.
