Join The Masterwork Chorus as they celebrate Handel’s immortal holiday classic, Messiah, with three major events. On Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 7:30 pm in the acclaimed acoustic of Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall – THE place to hear Messiah - and on Saturday, December 20, 2014 at 8:00 pm at the centrally located Ridge Performing Arts Center in Basking Ridge, NJ, the Chorus performs their exhilarating interpretation of Handel’s complete Messiah under the baton of Music Director Andrew Megill. Maestro Megill, in his last two appearances with The Masterwork Chorus, shares the stage with a professional baroque orchestra and four soloists with luminous voices perfectly suited to the work.

The Masterwork Chorus is an auditioned chorus of approximately 100 voices, and is dedicated to generously enriching the life of the cultural community. Since 1961 the chorus has returned to the Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall every year for its signature performance of Handel’s Messiah. This 2014 season marks the group’s 253rd and 254th performance of the work since its founding in 1955.
