Manuscript copy of the "Hallelujah Chorus" from St. Patrick's Cathedral, Dublin, Ireland, where Messiah was premiered in 1742.
Composed in only 24 days during the summer of 1741 and premiered in Dublin the following year, Handel's Messiah is perhaps the most popular and beloved choral work of all time. Join us to ring in the holidays with one of the greatest masterworks ever written!

78th ANNUAL SPRING CONCERT

Mozart's Mass in C Minor
Brahms's Schicksalslied (Song of Fate) and Mozart's Mass in C Minor are masterpieces of personal expression. Brahms's poignant work explores themes of fate and human destiny; Mozart's Mass, left unfinished only a few years before his death, set new standards of brilliance for sacred music at the end of the eighteenth century.
