Midseason Masterpieces

Sunday, March 10 - 3:30 PM


Come hear the always-exciting Chichester Psalms by Bernstein and a somewhat different Handel's Messiah, re-orchestrated by Mozart. The vocal parts are the same as the familiar Messiah, but Mozart has used a more complicated instrumentation. Mozart was commissioned to produce this new rendition in order to make the Baroque style of Handel more fashionable to contemporary audiences. You will hear a Messiah that you will recognize, but you will experience Mozart's notably different transformation of the orchestration.
