Symphoria performs Handel’s ‘Messiah’ Saturday
Symphoria join forces to present the Christmas portion of Handel’s “Messiah,” including the “Hallelujah Chorus,” at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday at Rome First United Methodist Church.
This musical setting of the Christmas story has become a holiday tradition for many families. The “Hallelujah Chorus” so moved King George II that he sprang to his feet on hearing it, and audiences have continued to do so ever since. This performance features Part I of the Messiah, which is also known as the Christmas Messiah.
Associate conductor Christian Capocaccia will lead the performance, and soprano Siyeon Kim, alto Vivien Shotwell, tenor Aurelio Dominguez and baritone Shannon De Vine will be featured with vocal solos.
Tickets are $10, $8 for seniors, and $5 for college students with ID. Children 18 and under attend free. Tickets may be purchased at the Symphoria website, www.ExperienceSymphoria.org, by calling 315-299-5598 or at the door.
Symphoria is a professional orchestra serving Syracuse and Central New York. It is one of two co-op orchestras in the U.S., founded by nearly 50 members of the former Syracuse Symphony Orchestra. SymphoriaCNY is on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Visit youtube.com/ExperienceSymphoria for videos.
