Evansville Philharmonic Continues Holiday Tradition With Two Performances of Handel’s ‘Messiah’
The holiday season in the Tri-State would not be complete without a performance of Handel's beloved oratorio Messiah by the Evansville Philharmonic. This year, we are being blessed with not one, but two powerful performances.
Evansville Philharmonic Conductor Laureate Alfred Savia will be joined by a baroque-size orchestra featuring members of the Evansville Philharmonic Orchestra, along with members of the Evansville Philharmonic Chorus. The performances will also feature these four accomplished soloists: Soprano Katherine Jolly, Mezzo-Soprano Krysty Swann, Tenor Joseph McBrayer, and Baritone Dalton Woody. Together they will present this 18th-century masterpiece in its traditional setting.
Where Can I See Messiah?
This first performance will take place at Trinity United Methodist Church, located at Third & Walnut Streets in downtown Evansville on Friday, December 15, at 7pm. The second performance will be the following night at St. Joseph Catholic Church, located at 1029 Kundek in Jasper, Indiana, on Saturday, December 16, at 7pm (EST).
Both sanctuaries will be bathed in candlelight as concertgoers experience the warmth and power of the Messiah. Highlights will include “For Unto Us a Child Is Born,” “The Trumpet Shall Sound,” and the famous “Hallelujah Chorus.”
