St. John’s United Church located at 262 Randall Street in downtown Oakville.
It has become an annual tradition for us to perform George Fredrick Handel’s Messiah in its entirety during the Christmas season. We continue performing a work that the players already know by heart and surely the audience has heard at least once prior because it is a story worth re-telling every year. From the stately French overture that begins the work, heavenly arias, and majestic choruses, Messiah recounts the tale like none other. Our attention to detail and unique stylistic interpretation sets our performance apart from any other. It is the perfect occasion to bring your family together during the Christmas season and enjoy this exquisite musical tradition.
Your neighbours say our Messiah is “outstanding”, “thrilling”, “magnificent”, and “the greatest Christmas present.” However no words can express the experience of a live performance. It is time to hear Messiah for yourself.
