Handel’s Messiah, HWV 56

Quite likely the most beloved choral work of all time, Handel’s Messiah, has been performed annually all over the world since its premiere in Dublin in 1742. After a year off in 2020 due to the pandemic, Colorado Bach Ensemble is thrilled to continue this festive Holiday tradition! We will present two performances this December, giving Colorado audiences an inspiring and exhilarating experience of this magnificent work! Joining the professional chorus/orchestra are some of the country’s premier Baroque soloists from right here in Colorado! This is one you won’t want to miss!
