Do-it-Yourself Messiah

Price — $15.00

The music of Handel comes to life in Chicago every Christmas with his magnificent Messiah performed by an audience of thousands, featuring world-class soloists and a full orchestra of local amateur and professional musicians volunteering their time.

This season marks the 43rd year of The Do-It-Yourself Messiah. This Chicago tradition began when the late Al Booth, founder of the International Music Foundation, brought to America the musical heritage of the parishioners of a small country church in southern England. You – the chorus, the conductor, the soloists, and the orchestra – will fill this hall with glorious sounds first heard in the New Musick Hall on Fishamble Street, Dublin, in 1742.
