Always a favorite at Christmas and always a staple of the Octavo choral seasons, Handel's 'Messiah' is inarguably his finest work. Composed in less than 4 weeks and containing upwards of a quarter of a million notes, the work is not only a masterpiece, but also a miracle. For this concert, the chorus expands its numbers a bit, as does the orchestra, and a powerful, wildly-talented quartet rounds out the beauty of this stunning Baroque oratorio. Performed at the acoustically-perfect Memorial Chapel on the Union College campus, the Octavos will be presenting this on a Saturday night this year as opposed to its traditional Sunday afternoon. Grab a good meal beforehand and come prepared to sing the 'Hallelujah Chorus' with us.
