Presented by the Masterwork Chorus
Chris Shepard, Conductor
Handel began composing Messiah on August 22, 1741, and he completed it 24 days later. According to scholar Clifford Bartlett, “however hasty the composition, the power of the musical imagination, the wealth of ideas, the depth of inspiration and the sheer variety of invention continue to astonish.”
Masterwork is a nonprofit chorus dedicated to enriching and supporting the cultural life of the community through inspiring choral performances. The Chatham-based performance group performs throughout New Jersey as well as at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and the Kennedy Center in Washington.
