George Frideric Handel's Messiah is one of the most recognizable musical works ever written. TheToronto Symphony Orchestra's beloved concert returns this holiday season at the Roy Thomson Hall.
Conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, the music is sublime, the singing divine. Davis's production is not your average Baroque Messiah. His grandiose production is a feast for the ears with soaring melodies and a brilliant, new orchestral arrangement.
Having seen the TSO's stunning production of Cirque de la Symphonie last week and being in utter awe of the orchestra, choir and performers, I know that I am in for an extraordinary musical experience when I see Messiah on the upcoming weekend.
The holiday season brings forth many traditions that I share with my family and friends; going caroling, baking cookies and having fun at Christmas parties. As an ardent supporter of the arts, I intend on making the TSO a part of my annual holiday tradition. The TSO's Messiah makes the festive season that much more special!
