Seattle Mandolin Orchestra: Mandolin Messiah
December 17, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
This holiday season, experience George Frederick Handel’s beloved oratorio “Messiah,” like you’ve never heard it…unless you were here in 2013 when they performed to close to sell out audiences!
“Messiah is one of the most popular and well-known pieces of music in the world,” said Joseph Pollard White, SMO Artistic Advisor and conductor for the evening’s performance. “The transparent quality of the mandolin sound supports the voices beautifully, revealing aspects of Handel’s music that one might not notice in a conventional setting.” The orchestra will present an abbreviated version of the oratorio, featuring Part I, or the “Christmas section,” plus the famous “Hallelujah Chorus.”
Founded in 1968, the Seattle Mandolin Orchestra is dedicated to revitalizing America’s mandolin ensemble tradition. Featuring the entire mandolin family of instruments, including mandolin, mandola, mandocello and mandobass, as well as guitar, the group performs throughout the Seattle area.
All Seats $22
