Perth Symphonic Chorus: Handel’s Messiah
December 21 at 7:30 pm - 10:15 pm$20 - $150
Handel’s Messiah is a musical rite of passage for the Christmas season. Directed by Perth’s own brilliant choral director Dr Margaret Pride OAM, solos reign supreme in the Baroque-era oratorio featuring the illustrious soloists, mezzo-soprano, Fiona Campbell, tenor Richard Butler and bass James Clayton. The opening movement highlights the birth of Christ and will come to life in this outstanding virtuosic interpretation not to be missed.
The Perth Symphonic Chorus propels with emotional impact uplifting messages and juxtaposes brilliantly on choruses like Since By Man Came Death, all in the lead up to the exalted Hallelujah chorus. The grandeur of Handel’s work is another reason to look forward to the holiday season and this would without doubt be the perfect gift.
