About this Concert

HALLELUJAH! For the very first time, Sebrina Maria Alfonso conducts the South Florida Symphony Orchestra in Handel’s glorious holiday tradition, Messiah. Kick off the holiday season as dazzling vocal soloists Neil Nelson, bass baritone; Martin Nusspaumer, tenor; Brittany Graham, soprano; Rehanna Thelwell, mezzo-soprano along with the South Florida Symphony Chorus, perform Part I (Christmas portion), culminating in the iconic “Hallelujah” Chorus.

The evening will open with an extraordinary “Behind the Music” story incorporating a reenactment of the dramatic struggle faced by composer George Fredric Handel as he toiled to complete this holiday masterpiece. Audiences will be enchanted by regally costumed actors narrating meaningful work passages that truly elevate the concert-going experience.

“A musical rite of the holiday season, the Baroque-era oratorio still awes listeners 250 years after the composer’s death” — Smithsonian Magazine

While it is popularly viewed as a Christmas work (which actually reflects on the Christian Lent and Easter stories), Messiah’s musical narrative brilliance transcends belief systems. This is sure to be the premier musical experience for the whole family this holiday season.

Tickets for this uplifting and energizing performance from just $15 are on sale now. Student tickets and group rates are also available. Information at 954.522.8445 or info@southfloridasymphony.org.

Handel’s Messiah is presented in part by The Estate of Rosemary Duffy Larson.
