Early Music Voices and their partner group Voicescapes – are holding two Messiah events this December!
December 21, 2019 at 7:30 pm
Christ Church Elbow Park Pre-concert talk at 7:00 pm
Our intimate and beautiful, period-instrument Messiah returns after last year’s sell-out. A full performance of Handel’s beloved work with Rosa Barocca on period instruments led by Claude Lapalme. They will be joined by soloists and an elite 16-voice choir made up of VoiceScapes and local professional singers.
The Calgary tradition lives on – its 18th year! Auditioned young soloists along with VoiceScapes and Friends will sing the arias. And you, the audience, can join the professional choir and orchestra (Rosa Barocca) to sing along with the choruses if you wish…or just sit back and enjoy! All conducted by Claude Lapalme.
NOTE: Scores are available to use on-site for a small fee.
Tickets: $30, 15 and under Free Single Tickets Online
