Messiah!...from the Houston Chamber Choir & ROCO
by: St.John Flynn, December 6, 2013 6:12:00 pm
The Chamber Choir presents the much-beloved Christmas portion of Handel's Messiah in collaboration with the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra. Complementing Messiah on the program will be Alessandro Scarlatti's charming Cantata Pastorale per la Nativita for soprano and strings. Handel and Scarlatti are rare and gifted masters of Baroque melody, and, as HCC artistic director explained to St.John Flynn, these works truly capture the peace and promise of the season.
Hannah Celeste Lu, soprano
Lauren Pastorek, mezzo-soprano
Jeffrey Ragsdale, tenor
Samuel Schultz, bass-baritone
