Update: Tickets for all three performances of Handel's Messiah are sold out; a recorded version of the concerts will be available on the Chapel’s YouTube channel from December 19 through Christmas Day.
Tickets are now available to the Chapel’s performances of G.F. Handel’s Messiah on December 2, 3, and 4.
Since 1933, Handel’s Messiah has been the fulcrum of the Chapel’s concert life and a cherished Duke holiday tradition. Handel’s masterwork traces the history of humanity’s divine redemption through Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection, in music that is both treasured and timeless. This year Messiah will be performed with period instruments and Baroque-era tuning, as Handel himself would have heard it. Each performance will last approximately two hours.
For the concert, the Duke Chapel Choir is joined by the Mallarmé Chamber Players and soloists Molly Quinn, Ellen Graham, Albert Lee, and Brian Hupp. Dr. Zebulon Highben, director of Chapel Music, conducts.
