HANDEL      Messiah

Residing in London since 1712, Handel had built his reputation writing opera in the Italian style, however as the public taste shifted he turned to the oratorio to recapture this earlier success. Messiah is his best-known work in this genre, and has been a fixture on the concert stage ever since its premiere in Dublin in 1742.

Handel’s much-loved work makes a return to PSO’s concert season in 2018 and will feature four exceptional young soloists. Sarah Penicka-Smith returns to conduct this performance where orchestra and soloists will be joined by the combined forces of Penrith City Choir, Academy Singers and Warrimoo Chorale.
