Brisbane Sings Messiah is one of the Queensland Choir’s signature events and has become a Christmas tradition for many audience members, including people who don’t regularly go to concerts.
Under the baton of Kevin Power OAM, George Frederic Händel’s glorious oratorio will be performed by a chorus of more than 150 comprised of The Queensland Choir and guest choristers.
Accompanied by the Sinfonia of St Andrew’s, the performance will feature soloists, Eleanor Greenwood (soprano), Sarah Winn (mezzo-soprano), Phillip Costovski (tenor) and Sam Hartley (bass).
With its blazing trumpets, thundering tympani and thrilling Hallelujah Chorus, Händel’s great choral masterpiece offers a magnificent combination of theatrical effect and spiritual reflection as a prelude to the Festive Season.
