Join us on Sunday December 11, 2022 at 2:00PM at St. Mary's Assumption Church as Symphony Chorus of New Orleans performs Handel's Messiah with professional orchestra and soloists soprano Sakinah Davis, mezzo Monika Cosson, tenor Tyrone Chambers II, and bass Patrick Jacobs.
Listen to Steven Edwards discuss Messiah on WWNO's Louisiana Considered with Diane Mack.
The night, though, truly belonged to the chorus. The brassy, driving ensembles are what make this work one of the most popular of the 20th century. The 100-plus voices of the choir, under the direction of Steven Edwards, sang with strength, precision and brightness, whether in the gentle pastoral airs or the powerful crescendos that burst from the stage.
