During this popular festive gathering with the Confederation Singers, the audience is encouraged to sing along with the Centre’s adult choir while it performs selections from George Frederic Handel’s renowned choral work. Presented at the stunning Kirk of St. James, admission is by donation in support of the Centre’s 2019 Youth Chorus Tour to New York City. 

Written in 1741, Messiahis the most famous creation of German composer George Frederic Handel, and its performance still awes listeners more than 250 years after the composer’s death. Ludwig van Beethoven himself, citing Messiah, said that Handel was the “greatest composer that ever lived.”
