ACS Presents Handel’s “Messiah”
December 17, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC-6
Join us to hear the timeless strains of Handel’s “Messiah” as Aspen Choral Society commemorates its 40th anniversary of performing this seasonal music! Beginning in 1977, under the direction of the late Ray Adams, the tradition continues in 2017 under the baton of Music Director, Paul Dankers. Enjoy the incredible sound of a large combined choir from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley, accompanied by a chamber orchestra, appropriate for this elegant Baroque music, under the leadership of Concertmaster, Julian Hallmark. This concert will be held in the acoustically stunning sanctuary of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church in Glenwood Springs. This Aspen Tradition is not to be missed and is exactly what we all need to bring us into the Holiday Spirit. Tickets are $20 at the door, or $15 in advance from Aspen Show Tix. Invite some friends, get your tickets early, but don’t miss this annual favorite!
