Being performed for the ninety-ninth consecutive year, Auckland Choral’s Messiah is an annual institution dedicated to Christmas, to Handel, and to some of the most famous music in the world. Just think of the “Hallelujah Chorus”, “The Trumpet Shall Sound”, or “For Unto Us a Child is Born” and immediately the whole musical celebration comes alive before your very ears. Join us again for what amounts to a joyful choral benediction at the end of another year. There is no better way to get into the spirit of Christmas.
