Queensland Symphony Orchestra continues its annual tradition of presenting Messiah, in 2017 with Handel specialist Erin Helyard at the helm.
This is an oratorio you must witness, if not every year, then this once. Telling the story of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection through music and solo arias, interspersed with parts for compelling chorus, Messiah includes one of the most famous pieces of Baroque choral music ever created: the rousing Hallelujah chorus. You must join us!
Queensland Symphony Orchestra is pleased to provide free concert programs to further enrich your concert experience. Here you will find detailed notes on the composers and repertoire, and biographies of guest artists.
You can help us reduce the cost of these printed programs and reduce the impact on the environment. View the program notes online prior to the concert, or download only the sections you wish to bring to the concert. And if you do need a printed program, please take one between two and keep it for the month of concerts.
