Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra bids welcome to Christmas with a large christmas concert with choir, vocal soloists and Handel’s magnificent Messiah! Favourites such as Ev’ry Valley, For Unto Us A Child Is Born and, of course, the magnificent Hallelujah Chorus guarantee plenty of goosebumps as well as Christmas joy.

The Gothenburg Concert Hall now hosts a performance of this magnificent work by the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Gothenburg Symphony Choir and the baroque and choral expert Graham Ross. Soloists for the evening are world soprano Camilla Tilling, mezzo-soprano and baroque star Ann Hallenberg, Swedish baritone Fredrik Zetterström and the distinguished Norwegian tenor Eirik Grøtvedt.

Handel was the musical king of London, but his Messiah was first performed in Dublin in 1742. He led the premiere performance himself from his organ, which he had shipped over from London for the concerts.Since then, Messiah has held a place of honour in the classic Christmas repertoire and continues to spread joy every year.

Nr 2 2017-2018 Tonsättarporträtt: Georg Friedrich Händel
