Messiah Oratorio Series


You know it as a great Christmas tradition, or for the Hallelujah Chorus sung on Easter Sunday, but there is so much more to Handel’s most well-known oratorio.

During Lent, we will study Part 2 of Messiah, which focuses on the Passion of Christ. Each session will include an exploration of the theology Handel presents through the lyrics, and a demonstration of how he uses the music to highlight this theology.

  • Sundays, March 17 and 24 - lecture/recital format;
  • Sunday, April 7 – full performance of Part 2; tickets $15 at the door Time: 4:00 pm

Instructors: Rev. Lori Diaz and Dr. Elaine Choi In collaboration with the University of Toronto Faculty of Music third year voice performance majors.
