The National Philharmonic celebrates the holiday season with the largest presentation of “Hallelujah! Handel’s Messiah” in the Washington area on Saturday, Dec. 21 at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Dec. 22 at 3 p.m. at The Music Center at Strathmore, which will be decorated in holiday trimmings.

The chorus and orchestra of nearly 200 are joined for the first time by talented local high school singers. First premiered in 1741, George Frideric Handel’s Messiah is one of the most iconic holiday classical selections of all time. The epic oratorio will be performed by the National Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorale and conducted by Chorale Artistic Director Stan Engebretson, who will be joined by internationally acclaimed soprano Esther Heideman, mezzo-soprano Magdalena Wór, tenor Matthew Smith, and baritone Hunter Enoch in this moving holiday favorite.

The musical masterpiece has become a classical staple, and has been performed continually since its composition 277 years ago. The concert will feature such timeless highlights as “And the Glory of the Lord” and the “Hallelujah Chorus,” as well as “Bass Aria – The Trumpet Shall Sound,” performed by National Philharmonic Orchestra principal trumpeter Chris Gekker. The Washington Post calls these performances “phenomenal.”

A pre-concert lecture will take place 6:45–7:15 p.m. on Saturday, and 1:45–2:15 p.m. on Sunday.

Ticket prices are $29–$69, free for young people 7–17, and $10 for college students. There is a new 25% discount for military and veterans.

Strathmore is located at 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit nationalphilharmonic.org or call 301.581.5100.
