Acclaimed Sunshine Coast ensemble, Oriana Choir, will launch the festive season with a concert presentation of Handel's Messiah in the splendid surrounds of Brisbane City Hall, on Sunday, November 26, 2023.

This afternoon concert will be conducted by Andrew Wailes, the Artistic Director of the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic. Oriana patrons may remember Andrew from their presentations of Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Mozart’s Requiem and Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass.

Performances of Handel’s Messiah will be taking place all around the world during the Christmas period and many people make an annual pilgrimage to see the work. Composed in just three weeks, Messiah has been delighting audiences for over 280 years. It is as mesmerising today as it was when, moved by the awe-inspiring ‘Hallelujah’ chorus.

Soloists this year are soprano Elisabeth Wallis Gaedtke, contralto Anne Fulton, tenor Tobias Merz and bass Jason Barry-Smith and Oriana will be accompanied by Sinfonia of St Andrew’s, an accomplished Brisbane based orchestra.

Oriana Choir is a valued partner of Must Do Brisbane.com
