HANDEL Messiah, HWV56

Being performed for the ninety-ninth consecutive year, Auckland Choral’s Messiah is an annual institution dedicated to Christmas, Handel, and some of the most famous music in the world. Just think of the ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, ‘The Trumpet Shall Sound’ or ‘For Unto Us a Child is Born’  and immediately the whole musical celebration comes alive before your very ears. Join us again for what amounts to a joyful choral benediction at the end of another year. There is no better way to get into the spirit of Christmas


Lauren Armishaw - Soprano  

Elisabeth Harris -  Mezzo-soprano  

Jonathan Abernethy - Tenor 

Joel Amosa - Bass

Auckland Choral 

Pipers Sinfonia

Uwe Grodd - Conductor


…To top it all, Grodd and his choristers were invincible here, from the Handelian grandeur of the opening chorus to the dramatic momentum of the closing hymn of praise.

Auckland Choral's Messiah provided a much-loved finale to the city's musical year and this week's performance earned cheers and standing ovations from an almost capacity audience
