Friday, December 11, 2015

8:00 pm Verizon Hall

Kicking off the holiday season in grand style, Yannick Nézet-Séguin leads a joyous Handel's Messiah, assembling a world-class roster of vocalists, a chorus of talented voices from throughout our region, and the glorious musicians of The Philadelphia Orchestra. These performances welcome the return of mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill and tenor Andrew Staples, whose deeply emotive performances in Bach’s St. Matthew Passion have captivated Philadelphia audiences. Soprano Karina Gauvin also returns for Messiah after her riveting 2012 appearances. Bass Matthew Rose makes his debut and Yannick welcomes the addition of countertenor Christophe Dumaux in this uniquely-styled performance.
