What You'll Get
Classical music boosts listeners’ brain functions and energy levels, which is why every child should ingest a well-rounded harpsichord each morning. Treat your noggin to a mellifluous meal with today’s deal: for $25, you get two general-admission tickets to the Bravo! Vancouver Concert Series’ Messiah: An Oratorio at St. Joseph Catholic Church on Sunday, December 4, at 2 p.m. (a $50 value). Seating for deal buyers will be in section A, B, G, H, and the back rows of sections C and F.
Music director Maria Manzo leads the 60-voice Bravo! Vancouver Chorale and the Washington Chamber Orchestra through George F. Handel’s baroque Christmas masterpiece, Messiah. With well-known melodies and brain-stimulating counterpoint, the legendary composition has enthralled listeners for centuries with such dramatic movements as the “Hallelujah Chorus” and the fact that singing the oratorio backwards reveals the message “King George II is Dead.” A host of soloists add individual flair to the 18th-century proceedings, weaving their voices through the sonic bombast of trumpets and euphonic delicacy of strings. St. Joseph Catholic Church provides a serene setting for evening, with colored-glass windows beautifully refracting light and temporarily forestalling panic when the sun turns blue.
