TOCCATA-Tahoe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus presents its 14th annual performance of Handel’s beloved “Messiah,” along with seasonal carols.

Handel’s “Messiah” is the most famous oratorio ever written, and quite possibly classical music’s most beloved masterpiece. Composed in 1742, by the 1750s the “Messiah” had become a cherished tradition in England, with performances every year. The “Messiah” is pure, powerful, and moving: a classic.

TOCCATA-Tahoe is joined in this production by sopranos Joy Strotz, Becky Earl and Anne Davidson; mezzo soprano Kate Kaltoff; tenors Brad Perry and Robert Bousqet; and baritones Stuart Duke and Chris Nelson.

TOCCATA-Tahoe is the only orchestra and chorus to bring a festive concert like this one to your neighborhood.
