A Show Unlike Anything You’ve Seen Before Handel's Messiah Performed by the Colorado Symphony

In this newsletter, I’ve talked about my passion for music and my longtime participation with the Colorado Symphony Chorus. I know many might be unfamiliar with the Colorado Symphony and Chorus, so with that in mind, I wanted to share a little bit about the Symphony Chorus and the groundbreaking show we have coming up this holiday season. I joined the Colorado Symphony Chorus in 1993. While the Colorado Symphony has been around in various forms for nearly 100 years, the Chorus has only been established for 35 years. Despite being an all-volunteer chorus, the Colorado Symphony Chorus has become one of the premier symphonic choruses in the United States. In addition to performing with the Colorado Symphony, we’ve had the privilege of performing with the Dallas Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic. We’ve also performed at Bravo! Vail and the Aspen Music Festivals, and traveled to perform in Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Paris, Strasbourg, and Munich. We have recently been invited to perform in the opening concert for the Salzburg Music Festival in Salzburg, Austria, in 2021. This December, you can watch our popular “Colorado Christmas” family concerts from Dec. 13–15. We will be performing George Frideric Handel’s majestic “Messiah” unlike it’s ever been performed before. For many, Handel’s “Messiah,” which tells the story of Jesus Christ from the prophecy of his coming to his resurrection, is a holiday staple.

a main chorus and a “street” chorus, sing the traditional music in a dramatic way that emphasizes the text, message, and story. This brings exciting new life to an old favorite. It will be unlike anything you have ever seen before. Tickets are available at Tickets. If you’re looking for a way to really get into the Christmas spirit, you don’t want to miss out on this show. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fan of “Messiah” already or not — I promise you will not regret coming this Christmas.


Tickets are available by going to Tickets.

Also in December, we will be shaking things up with the presentation of “Handel’s Messiah Awakening” from Dec. 20–21. This classic “Messiah” piece is presented note-for- note, exactly as written with many of the parts that are commonly left out. What is different is the presentation. The soloists, performing from memory, are not just singing the piece, but telling the story. The chorus, divided into
