HAN­DEL’S MES­SIAH

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - WHAT'S ON -

What bet­ter way to greet the Christ­mas sea­son than by at­tend­ing a per­for­mance of Mes­siah at The Joan? For more than a quar­ter of a mil­len­nium, Han­del’s most fa­mous or­a­to­rio has been one of the best-loved of all works in the tra­di­tion of West­ern sa­cred mu­sic. Pen­rith’s res­i­dent sym­phony orches­tra per­forms with out­stand­ing vo­cal soloists from the Syd­ney Con­ser­va­to­rium of Mu­sic, and with the com­bined voices of Pen­rith City Choir and Youth Choir, Academy Singers and War­ri­moo Cho­rale — a massed cho­rus of more than 100 voices. Early book­ings are ad­vised be­cause past per­for­mances of Mes­siah have of­ten sold out. Where: Joan Suther­land Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre When: 3pm Cost: $54 adult, $44 con­ces­sion, $140 fam­ily (two adults, two chil­dren) De­tails: the­joan.com.au
