Houston, TX – The Houston Choral Society’s Christmas concerts are always an audience favorite and have become an annual tradition for hundreds of Houston families. This year, the HCS Chamber Choir presents Handel’s Messiah, on Friday, December 21 at 7:30 PM, at the Tallowood Baptist Church Chapel.
Dr. Kevin M. Klotz, Artistic Director, conducts what is considered to be one of the world’s most beloved musical works. A triumph of music and text, Handel’s Messiah is a matchless December tradition. In this oratorio, Handel includes virtuosic solo movements along with dramatic and profound choruses that tell the story of Christ.
“The Houston Choral Society Chamber Choir is thrilled to present the Christmas portion along with the popular chorus, ‘Hallelujah,’ of Handel’s Messiah,” said Dr. Klotz. The performance features the Chamber Choir, a select ensemble from within the Houston Choral Society, and will be accompanied by a professional chamber orchestra composed of musicians from the Houston area. Featured soloists are talented HCS chorus members soprano Veronica Frankeny, alto Azuree Bernard, tenor Taylor Brewer, and bass George Engelmann.
