Back by popular demand: the Canberra Symphony Orchestra (CSO) and the CSO Chorus present Handel’s timeless Messiah to warm hearts and lift spirits.

Among the greatest hits of classical music, this momentous work has been performed countless times around the world since its 1742 premiere, from small ensembles to large-scale productions.

Composed in a matter of weeks and marked Soli Deo gloria (To God alone the glory), Handel’s powerful oratorio with English text by Charles Jennens, is uplifting and triumphant, best known for the matchless ‘Hallelujah chorus’.

The orchestra and choir will be joined by celebrated guest artists, under the baton of Brett Weymark OAM, one of Australia’s foremost choral conductors.
