Why See San Francisco Symphony: Handel's Messiah?

ClassicalConcertsFamily ShowsHoliday & Christmas Shows


Handel's Messiah is perhaps the most well known and widely performed choral work in history. A baroque oratorio whose every section is instantly recognisable, from 'Comfort ye my people' to The Hallelujah Chorus, it can certainly lay claim to be the composer's finest work. Over the centuries, it has become especially associated with the festive season, and the San Francisco Symphony is one of the many across the country who perform it annually in December.

Don't miss this wonderful Christmas tradition, guaranteed to inspire you and your family!
