The Toronto Choral Society (TCS) was founded in 1845, to foster a positive musical environment in which members can learn and develop both musical ability and choral repertoire. In addition, the TCS aims to be an integral part of the community of Toronto, presenting important works from the traditional choral repertoire, exploring the music of the many cultures that make up our community, and making an active contribution to the life of the city by participating in community events.
TCS Presents: Handel’s Messiah
On Wednesday, December 18, the Toronto Choral Society (TCS) is delighted to present Handel’s Messiah. The choir will be joined by soloists Donna Bennett (soprano), Adriano Albu (mezzo-soprano), David Menzies (tenor), and Anthony Cleverton (baritone).
For the performance, the 130-voice choir and soloists will be accompanied by gifted Toronto organist William O’Meara and members of the celebrated choral music orchestra, Talisker Players. The program will include the oratorio’s best-loved choruses and arias.
“The Toronto Choral Society has a long relationship with Messiah-the original choir sang the very first full-length performance ever heard in Toronto, at Massey Hall in 1872,” said Geoffrey Butler, TCS conductor and artistic director. “Since then Handel’s masterwork has become a seasonal favourite with Toronto audiences, and we’re proud to share this holiday treat with our friends, neighbours, and families.”
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased online now with a $1 service charge. If available, tickets will also be sold at the door on concert night for $25.
