Handel Messiah

Shortly after sending Handel his libretto for a new oratorio, Charles Jennens wrote to a friend, hoping that the composer “will lay out his whole genius and skill upon it.” In 24 days of feverish writing, Handel did just that, creating his immortal Messiah. Conductor Julian Wachner joins the Orchestra and the Philadelphia Symphonic Choir for a revelatory performance of this masterwork.
