KENT—St. Andrew’s Music in the Nave series will present its 12th annual performance of Handel’s Messiah Friday, Dec. 8, at 8 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Parish. Orchestra New England’s James Sinclair will conduct the Sherman Chamber Ensemble and guest soloists.
As always, audience members are invited to sing the choral parts and will be provided scores.
George Frideric Handel’s Messiah, a monumental work for voices and orchestra, has been thrilling audiences since its Dublin premiere in 1742. This performance will include Part One (the Nativity) and the celebrated “Hallelujah Chorus.”
The program will introduce soprano Louise Fauteux, who has sung with the New York Philharmonic and made her Carnegie Hall debut with Messiah in 2022. Returning soloists are mezzo Meredith Ziegler, tenor Paul Patinka, bass Joseph McDonough and organist Laurel Larsen.
