Handel’s Hallelujah showcase

2018-11-20 06:01

The Symphony Choir of Cape Town will once again perform Handel’s Messiah, the uplifting English-language oratorio, in the intimate venue of Christ Church, Constantia on Saturday 22 December at 19:00.

It is said that when he wrote the “Hallelujah” chorus, Handel “saw all heaven before him”.

Handel’s music explores the human response to the divine and nowhere is this more apparent than in the “Hallelujah” and “Amen” choruses of his Messiah, first performed in 1741.

The Symphony Choir of Cape Town was founded in 1972 and since then has performed on average four major choral works a year under the baton of well-known conductor, Alexander Fokkens.

Tickets are R200 per person and are available from Quicket and at the door.
