For the first time in three years, music-lovers will be able to hear a live performance of Handel’s all-time favorite, Messiah. On Saturday, December 10 at Blue Hill First Congregational Church, Blue Hill Bach will join forces with Baroque Orchestra of Maine (BOOM) to perform the work’s Christmas selections. Under the direction of conductor George Emlen, a small ensemble of some of the area’s finest Baroque musicians will perform using Handel’s original instrumentation. In what has become a Blue Hill Bach tradition, the audience will be invited to join in singing the “Hallelujah” chorus at the end of the evening.
This year’s performance of Messiah will begin at 7:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 10. Admission is by advance reservation or at the door: $25 general/$10 students/under 18 free. Audience members will not be required to wear masks, but are asked to bring them to wear if they join in singing at the end of the concert.
