(Community annoucement by Early Music Vancouver)
Early Music Vancouver (EMV) invites audiences to celebrate the festive season with the much-anticipated return of Handel’s Messiah, on November 30, 2019 at 8pm at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts.
This spectacular performance will feature a baroque chamber orchestra of 20 period instrumentalists, a chorus of 40 singers, and four international soloists who have extensive experience performing Handel with some of the world’s most respected baroque specialists: Joanne Lunn (soprano), Krisztina Szabó (mezzo-soprano), Thomas Hobbs (tenor), and Peter Harvey (baritone).
Taurins is hailed by the Toronto Star as Canada’s “Prince of Messiah.”
He has conducted the work annually for the last 37 years with the Grammy-winning Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and appears regularly as a guest conductor of orchestras and choirs across Canada.
EMV’s Messiah will also feature Vancouver’s Juno-nominated Pacific Baroque Orchestra (PBO), and the Vancouver Cantata Singers, for the return of a deeply engaging and revelatory take on Handel’s beloved oratorio.
November 30, 8pm, Chan Centre for the Performing Arts
