Vancouver Bach Choir brings Handel’s Messiah to Surrey

Bell Performing Arts Centre08 Dec '18 @ 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM
    Every December for nearly 90 years, the Vancouver Bach Choir has taken to the stage to perform one of the world’s most famous choral masterpieces, Handel’s Messiah. This December is no exception, as the choir brings its celebrated production to the Bell Performing Arts Centre for the first time on Saturday, December 8th at 7:30pm. Under the baton of Music Director Leslie Dala, an ensemble of celebrated local soloists and the newly founded Surrey City Orchestra join the choir to bring to life this time honoured and celebrated musical masterpiece – capped off by the iconic Hallelujah chorus.
     
    Since its debut in 1742, Handel’s Messiah has been a resounding success, popular all over the world in celebration of both the Christmas and Easter holidays. It is said that Handel composed the entire work in a three week frenzy, upon which he remarked, "I did think I did see all Heaven before me and the great God Himself." Whatever his inspiration, the work has stood the test of the time and contains some of the most memorable moments in music, including the famous Hallelujah chorus.
     
    The evening will feature four local soloists that demonstrate the incredible depth of talent present in the lower Mainland. Soloists like Vancouver based Tyler Simpson who sang for seven seasons at the Metropolitan Opera, or local favourite, counter-tenor Shane Hanson, fresh off winning the local Metropolitan Council Auditions for the second year in a row. These soloists will share the stage with the Surrey City Orchestra; a new organization that aims to build a professional orchestra comprised of Surrey area musicians, including members of the Borealis String Quartet.
     
    Tickets begin at just $18 for this holiday concert and can be found by visiting the Bach Choir website at vancouverbachchoir.com or contact the Bell Centre office directly.
