Handel’s Messiah
December 15 & 16, 8 p.m.
December 17, 3 p.m.
at St. Anne’s Church, Church Circle, Annapolis

Few places are more magical than downtown Annapolis during the holidays. There’s no better place than downtown Annapolis to share a holiday tradition with family and friends. J. Ernest Green conducts the Chorale’s Chamber Chorus and the Annapolis Chamber Orchestra in a very special trio of performances of Handel’s “Messiah” at historic St. Anne’s Church in Church Circle. The nearly perfect acoustics and historic beauty of St. Anne’s make it the perfect location to experience this much-loved oratorio, which takes on extra intensity and meaning under Mr. Green’s direction. All performances include a unique addition in large-screen displays of music, images, translations and biblical quotes that bring the work’s message to modern audiences.

As part of its Bach+ Series at historic St. Anne’s Church, Live Arts Maryland presents J.S. Bach’s Mass in B-Minor. The Annapolis Chorale Chamber Chorus and Annapolis Chamber Orchestra will perform the work under the direction of J. Ernest Green. Organist and Bach specialist Larry Molinaro will also perform. One of the crowing achievements in all of Western Civilization, Bach’s Mass in b-minor is full of glorious music and musical puzzles that inspire and astonish both performers and listeners alike to this day! It really is as one performer described it – the Mount Everest of music.
