Award-winning musical director Timothy Russell has led the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra through three decades of innovative and enchanting orchestral performances. Celebrating a holiday tradition, ProMusica invites audience members to bring along their favorite sentient nutcracker and sing along with a rousing production of Handel’s Messiah. One of the world’s most beloved oratorios, Handel’s take on the sacred story is best experienced with mass vocals and instrumentals. Along with a crop of choirs, string savants, and music directors harvested from partnering high schools, the audience joins the ProMusica musicians in a wall of euphony, coating the historic walls and luminous arches of the Southern Theatre with humbug-zapping zeal and clouds of Yuletide peppermint breath.
ProMusica Chamber Orchestra
ProMusica Chamber Orchestra not only celebrates some of the most beautiful music ever written, it helps artists create more. Since its founding in 1978, it has commissioned 64 pieces and presented more than 110 world premieres by composers such as Peter Schickele and Pulitzer Prize winner Aaron Jay Kernis. This, coupled with the ensemble's tendency to mix time-tested pieces with modern American masterpieces, has helped it rack up eight awards from the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers.
