'Tis the season for glorious music, so what better way to celebrate it than with Handel's Messiah. This monumental celebration of faith and the human experience, composed in 1741, stands as one of the most beloved works in all of classical music. A true masterpiece, it includes some of the most joyful and memorable music ever written and is the most performed choral work in the English language. With its powerful "Hallelujah" chorus, Messiah's timeless message of hope and renewal resonates each Yuletide season. Conductor Paul Agnew leads the Seattle Symphony, the Seattle Symphony Chorale and an acclaimed group of soloists at Benaroya Hall.
