Handel’s Messiah is a musical rite of passage for the Christmas season. Directed by Perth’s own brilliant choral director Dr Margaret Pride OAM, solos reign supreme in the Baroque-era oratorio featuring the illustrious soloists, mezzo-soprano Fiona Campbell, tenor Richard Butler, bass James Clayton and, singing with us for the first time, soprano Bonnie de la Hunty.
The opening movement highlights the birth of Christ and will come to life in this outstanding virtuosic interpretation not to be missed. The Perth Symphonic Chorus propels, with emotional impact, uplifting messages and juxtaposes brilliantly on choruses like Since By Man Came Death, all in the lead up to the exalted Hallelujah chorus. The grandeur of Handel’s work is another reason to look forward to the holiday season and this would, without doubt, be the perfect Christmas gift.
