Featuring the Parish House Baroque and the Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble

Join us with the Parish House Baroque and the Colorado Vocal Arts Ensemble for an unforgettable concert event. This is an abbreviated version of Handel’s Messiah, and the Oratorio is performed by a select choir and a period ensemble orchestra.

Messiah stands among the greatest and most beloved musical works of all time, showcasing the life and death of Jesus Christ through music. First performed in Dublin in 1742, this historic masterpiece is the only musical piece to have been performed every year since its composition.
