Central Coast Chorale & Chamber Orchestra presents

CENTRAL COAST SINGS ‘MESSIAH’
Sunday 26th November 2017

People spend their entire lives working to produce something of the magnitude of the ‘Messiah’ and Handel did it in 3 weeks.  How extraordinary!  He put everything he had into this inspired, powerful and emotional Oratorio.  Day after day without eating or sleeping he doesn’t stop for he has seen ‘the very face of God’ and the music pours from his soul through divine inspiration.  Handel’s ‘Messiah’ was composed in 1741 with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens and was first performed in Dublin on 13 April 1742 and received its London premiere a year later.  After an initially modest public reception, the Oratorio gained in popularity, eventually becoming one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.

The Central Coast Chorale continues its fine and proud tradition of presenting innovative concerts.  This concert is indeed a rare opportunity to experience music which transforms human tragedy into a triumph of the spirit.  It’s of great significance at Christmas time celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, his death and resurrection offering hope to mankind.

This is a Mass Choir event with 100 singers from the Central Coast and Hunter Valley performing this Oratorio with 5 outstanding professional Soloists and a 23 piece professional Chamber Orchestra.  A concert not to be missed.  Come along and make your Christmas a Celebration to be enjoyed and remembered.
