Saturday 30th November is the day before the beginning of Advent and, for many, a performance of Handel's Messiah is an essential part of the pre-Christmas period.
In this concert, the first in what we intend to be a long term collaboration, Manchester Baroque in partnership with Manchester Cathedral will perform Handel's Oratorio Messiah with a full orchestra and the Cathedral Choir.
Like all Manchester Baroque concerts, the performance will utilise original eighteenth century instruments or modern replicas, performed at the pitch and with the scale of ensemble that Handel himself might have recognised.
Conductor: Christopher Stokes, Orchestral Leader: Pauline Nobes.
Soloists: Philippa Hyde, Joyce Tindsley, Alex Banfield, Terence Ayebare.
Tickets for this performance of Handel’s Messiah at Manchester Cathedral are priced from £10 to £25 and are available here Opens in new window via Eventbrite.
