Toronto Choral Society
Messiah & Carols, A Christmas Celebration!
What better way to launch the holiday season than an evening of the uplifting sounds of Handel’s Messiah and traditional Christmas Carols! The 150-voice Toronto Choral Society will fill Koerner Hall with the rich and emotional sound of one of the Western world‘s best known choral works.
Handel wrote this, his most iconic work, in just eighteen days, and it is said that he “wept while he composed the Hallelujah chorus, and claimed he saw visions of angels while he worked on this piece”. Could we be so fortunate while listening? The magnificent choir will be accompanied by the Talisker Players, a unique ensemble of musicians whose strength and reputation lies in the accompaniment of choirs.
Throughout the evening, traditional Christmas carols will be interspersed in the program as well as some audience sing-a-longs, rounding out the perfect festive concert!
