Most people associate Handel’s most famous oratorio Messiah with Advent or Christmas, but Handel actually wrote the piece to be performed at Easter. The piece premiered at noon on April 13, 1742 in Dublin, Ireland as a benefit concert which supported several local charities, including famine relief.
The Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, along with guest conductor Erin Freeman and soloists, is bringing this choral masterpiece back to its roots by performing it during the Easter season. Non-perishable food donations will be accepted at the door to benefit the Food Bank of WNY.
