22 December @ Perth Concert Hall ·
Presented by Perth Symphonic Chorus ·

A joyous Christmas tradition! The wonders of this glorious oratorio are made almost endless when directed by Perth’s own brilliant choral director Margaret Pride OAM.

Exquisite arias such as ‘I Know My Redeemeth Liveth’ and ‘Rejoice!’ are contrasted with the majesty of arias like ‘The Trumpet Shall Sound’ and ‘Thus Saith the Lord’.The real genius of this work, however, is revealed in the great choruses sung to perfection in baroque style by Perth Symphonic Chorus, and accompanied by our very own nationally recognised Perth Baroque Orchestra led by the exceptional violinist Paul Wright with soloists Janet Todd (soprano), Robert Macfarlane (Tenor), Tobias Cole (Counter-Tenor), James Clayton (Bass).
