Handel's Messiah - Three Choirs Concert

Provided by:

Event runs from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM


The Three Choirs Festival is a collaboration between three local choirs - Beechworth Singers, Murray Conservatorium Choir and Vocal Dimension, Wangaratta. This year's Three Choirs Festival will be a performance of Handel's Messiah by the three choirs, supported by the Three Choirs Festival Orchestra, formed for this event and involving musicians from across the region. Messiah is a reflection on the life of Jesus as the long-awaited Messiah called the Christ. It is in three parts. Part One begins with prophecies from the Old Testament, moving to the birth of Jesus and the angels' announcement to the shepherds. Part Two covers the Passion of Christ and ends with the mighty Hallelujah Chorus. Part Three covers the Resurrection and the promise of everlasting life, ending with a prayer of thanks and a resounding Amen. Local audiences usually have to travel to one of their capital cities to enjoy a performance of Messiah. This is an opportunity for you to enjoy a performance in the local area, by local singers and instrumentalists, all under the baton of well-known local conductor, Paul Tasker. They promise you an uplifting and joyful experience and they look forward to seeing you at one of the performances. Entry Cost Adult $25 - Under 18, no charge. Concession $20
