THE CECILIA CHORUS OF NEW YORK PRESENTS

G.F. Handel
Messiah

Mark Shapiro, Conductor


Handel’s traditional classic in a suspenseful and luminous interpretation.

The Cecilia Chorus of New York will perform Messiah with orchestra and four outstanding soloists, bringing fresh sparkle and tenderness to this electrifyingly timeless narrative.

Two soloists in their Carnegie Hall main-stage debuts: soprano Shakèd Bar and tenor Michael St. Peter. Return appearances by two of our favorite soloists: countertenor Nicholas Tamagna (Opéra Royal de Versailles) and bass-baritone William Guanbo Su (Gerda Lissner Competition first prize winner).

The Cecilia Chorus of New York has a proud history of identifying and presenting outstanding soloists in role and hall debuts. Catch these newcomers on the way up!
