Voices of Birralee

We finish the year with the beloved spiritual masterpiece, Messiah, by Handel. Featuring some of the most famous choral and vocal melodies of all time, our 2020 performance will be led by conductor Nicholas McGegan. Described as “one of the finest baroque conductors of his generation” (The Independent) and “an expert in 18th-century style” (The New Yorker), this will be an energetic and vibrant performance of this classic which should not be missed. It’s the perfect way to kick off the festive season!
