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.

Bramwell Tovey is a charming gem - and revealed himself as a mighty fine jazz pianist to boot. The first half of the concert was filled with Bernstein (Candide) and Gershwin, a lovely singer and solos by various members of the NY Phil. The second half was a great performance by the Army jazz band and drum and bugle corps, who then joined with the orchestra for some rousing marches. The audience was revved and patriotic feelings abounded. A great evening!
About the Ticket Supplier: New York Philharmonic
The New York Philharmonic is by far the oldest symphony orchestra in the United States, and one of the oldest in the world. Founded in 1842 by a group of local musicians led by American-born Ureli Corelli Hill, the Orchestra currently plays some 180 concerts a year. On December 18, 2004, the Philharmonic gave its 14,000th concert--a milestone unmatched by any other orchestra in the world.
Since 1917 the Philharmonic has recorded nearly 2,000 albums; more than 500 recordings are currently available. In February 2003, the Orchestra was honored by The Recording Academy with a Trustees Award in recognition of its outstanding contributions to the industry and American culture. Members of the Philharmonic also performed on the 45th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, televised internationally from New York's Madison Square Garden -- the first time that a major symphony orchestra had performed live on the Grammy Awards.
