Early Music Vancouver Presents Handel’s Messiah

Music director and harpsichordist Alexander Weimann will lead the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, the Vancouver Cantata Singers, and four internationally acclaimed vocalists in performances that will bring new life to this holiday classic.

This special presentation of Messiah will demonstrate how the experience can change dramatically for the audience when period instruments are used and the sheer number of musicians is reduced. The festive performance will feature a baroque chamber orchestra of 20 period instrumentalists, as well as a chorus of only 30 singers that is by nature, more nimble and flexible than a large symphony chorus.

The four international soloists all have extensive experience performing Handel with some of the most respected baroque specialists in the world and include: Yulia Van Doren (soprano), Krisztina Szabó (mezzo-soprano), Charles Daniels (tenor), and Tyler Duncan (baritone). This dream team of vocal soloists will partner with Vancouver’s very own Juno-nominated Pacific Baroque Ochestra (PBO), and the Vancouver Cantata Singers for what promises to be a revelatory take on Handel’s best-known work.
