The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra and State Theater celebrate the joy of the holiday season with an uplifting performance of Handel's Messiah, an oratorio that uses English-language choral song and orchestral music to tell the story of Christ. In this year's production, 80 singers from Christ Church Choir and Coro Lirico belt the composition's famed "Hallelujah Chorus" and "For Unto Us a Child is Born," pieces of euphony as exultant as a singing telegraph machine. Lending their commanding voices to the New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra's melodies, soloists include soprano Marvis Martin, who has performed with the Metropolitan Opera, and baritone Keith Spencer, known for switching out his lungs with spare locomotive parts to fill Carnegie Hall. The vast range of feeling captured in the musical saga spurred NPR to declare, "Messiah is Handel's greatest oratorio, and by any measure, the greatest choral work in English."

Originally a vaudeville and silent-film palace, State Theatre offers concertgoers an ornately decorated space for sing-alongs, dancing, and chandelier swinging.

State Theatre New Jersey

The State Theatre New Jersey was saved, as its website states, from "the ravages of time." Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre New Jersey to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue's signature dome.

Great Venue...Great Show

A smaller venue did a great job of moving people to their seats. Parking was challenging.
