The Choir and Orchestra presented a stunning Easter concert of Handel’s Messiah to a packed Tabernacle audience and overflow in three additional venues. The program was also viewed on the Choir’s web site and its YouTube channel as an Easter special—the first for such a Choir venture. The Salt Lake Tribune described the concert as a “rousing performance that brought Saturday’s unusually well-behaved audience to its feet cheering.”
Now, May 13 thru 22 in the Tabernacle, Mack Wilberg directs the Choir in 8 days over a two-week period of recording sessions of Handel’s signature work, Messiah. The Choir’s new recording of the venerable, unabridged oratorio will be available in early 2015.
