HANDEL Messiah, HWV 56

Maui Chamber Orchestra follows up Beethoven with the most famous work by the man Beethoven described as “the greatest composer that ever lived” -- George Frideric Handel (1685–1759). Now a perennial Christmas favorite, Handel’s Messiah -- which was composed in less than a month’s time -- debuted in Dublin, Ireland just after Easter in 1742. The tri-partite work describes the foretelling of Christ’s birth, his sacrifice for humankind, and his resurrection from the dead. With the MCO Chorus and a quartet of vocal soloists, the MCO will perform almost the entire oratorio, omitting just a handful of movements from Part 2.

Join us for this joyous, uplifting concert, celebrating the message of peace on Earth!
