The weather was the tail end of a heavly rainy day. Thank goodness the rains subsided significantly just in time to attend the event.. I wore a dressy blouse and slacks ensemble with matching slippers which was apropos for my expectation of this classy evening event. Of course people can dress as they feel..

It was a little disconcerting that the doors didn't open up until about 5 minutes before the show, but everyone got time to find their seats and take in the ambiance without feeling rushed. Ushers were excellent.

The Messiah was a great way to get in the mood for Christmas! The Kennedy Center was very accommodating to those us of that were stuck in horrendous traffic.

The orchestra, soloists and chorus did a good job, but the Beecham/Goossens 1959 version of this piece should be relegated to the realm of historical artifacts and never be preformed in public again (except for some interested musicologists).
