It's the classical music highlight of every holiday season. Handel's Messiah is a glorious tradition expressing birth, death and resurrection in song, and featuring the famous "Hallelujah" chorus. Unlike most of Handel's oratorios, Messiah showcases the chorus as a whole, rather than the soloists, giving the work a greater emotional impact. Under the joyful baton of Artistic Director Grant Gershon, the voices of the LA Master Chorale will fill the beautiful Walt Disney Concert Hall with its soaring sounds this Christmas season. It's a work that was composed in a mere 24 days, but more than 250 years later it remains one of the most popular and performed classical works of all time.
