Composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, “Messiah” is a time-honored Christmas
tradition around the world, and still remains the most performed piece of music in
the Classical repertoire. This annual performance is a wonderful way to continue the
holidays, and provides a great close to the Furth Center Christmas concert series.
