BRANFORD, CONNECTICUT, USA : Branford Messiah performs its 27th season of Handel's Messiah with resident chorus and chamber orchestra.
Conducted by Roy Wiseman
In many of Handel’s oratorios the choruses are overshadowed by the intricate and extensive solo parts. But in Messiah, says Laurence Cummings, director of the London Handel Orchestra, “the chorus propels the work forward with great emotional impact and uplifting messages.” (Smithsonian.com). With these choruses, alternating with beautiful solos and outstanding orchestral accompaniment the host Churches on the Shoreline have been filled to capacity for 25 years and for many this performance rings in the holiday season. It is because of the generosity of local businesses and individuals that this program has been sustained since its inception in 1987.
