GEORGETOWN CHORAL SOCIETY
Christopher Dawes, conductor
Bradley Christensen, baritone
Composed in 1741, Handel's Messiah is one of the most popular pieces in the Choral literature. Handel originally wrote Messiah for modest vocal and instrumental forces, with optional settings for many of the individual numbers, but in the years after his death, the work was adapted for performance on a much larger scale. The version presented on December 2 is titled "The Georgetown Messiah," and will consist of Parts I, II, and III of Handel's Messiah interspersed with letters from Handel himself, George Kennedy (founder of Georgetown), Saint George the Martyr and George II, King of Great Britain.
You won't want to miss this unique version of a most beloved work.
