Messiah Handel

The Messiah, by Georg Frederik Handel, will be performed by an ensemble of instruments, singers and distinguished soloists. Handel's magnum opus was composed for and originally performed with sixteen voices -- not a chorus of hundreds, as is the current vogue. St. John's production will strive to recapture Handel's vision and to be as historically accurate as possible. In addition to members of the St. John's Choir, singers will include members from the Yale Schola Cantorum and Voxtet; soloists Logan Tanner, Mary McCue and Brady Delvecchio, accompanied by members of the Hartford Symphony Orchestra along with organist Nathan Lively, under the direction of Vaughn Mauren.
