TICKETS: FREE (virtual tickets required)
ABOUTNow in its eighty-eighth year, the annual presentation of Handel’s Messiah at Duke Chapel is one of the oldest and most beloved musical traditions at Duke University. This year, we continue that tradition in a non-traditional fashion, blending live performances of arias and recitatives with virtual, sing-along choruses created from 2019’s Messiah concerts. The online program will include all of Part I—the Christmas portion—plus the “Hallelujah” chorus.
Molly Quinn, soprano
Audrey Walstrom, mezzo soprano
Henry Branson, tenor
Christopher Short, baritone
Duke Chapel Choir
Mallarmé Chamber Players
Dr. Zebulon Highben, director
