Combining thunderous power with gentle tenderness, Handel’s Messiah is a holiday tradition to remember.  For anyone who has experienced the grandeur of the work, the reasons for its popularity are obvious.  Brilliant soloists, a magnificent chorus, and the NAC Orchestra under the direction of conductor Paul Goodwin combine for these majestic performances of Handel’s most-beloved oratorio.  Culminating with the triumphant shout of triumph, the “Hallelujah” chorus, this work shines for the holiday season.
