Handel’s Messiah with Pittsburgh Camerata

April 13 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Our performance matches this time-frame, and offers an opportunity to hear this profound work at this unique time of the year. Handel scored his sacred oratorio for modest forces, both for chorus and instruments, offering optional settings to accommodate various available resources.

Led by co-directors and violin virtuosi Julie Andrijeski and Robert Mealy, this program of “new music” is virtuosic, experimental, unexpected, and deeply moving. Music by Castello, Fontana, Merula, Marini and…
