Welcome the holiday season with our annual presentation of Handel’s masterpiece, featuring the stirring “Hallelujah” Chorus.

This year, popular soloists Carla Connors, Monika Cosson, Thomas Rowell, and Patrick Jacobs return to perform with our 60-voice chorus and the Choral Society Orchestra.

First performed in 1741, this reflection on the birth, death and resurrection of Christ remains one of the best-known and best-loved works in the classical repertoire. And it’s played an important role in our history. Performance of selections from Messiah at a meeting of the Music Study Club of Pensacola in 1935 led to the formation of the Choral Society, which has presented the work, at least in part, every year since.
