HANDEL
MESSIAH

Symphony Hall

Nothing says “holiday tradition” like Handel’s iconic masterpiece, and H+H celebrates this tradition with its 165th consecutive year performing the ultimate Messiah. We perform it as the composer intended, with a pulse and a momentum that adds to its power to lift the heart and the soul. Led by acclaimed Baroque master Bernard Labadie, our brilliant Orchestra and Chorus and superlative soloists deliver the Messiah in Boston. Hallelujah Handel!

“The Handel and Haydn Society’s Messiah remains unmatched.”
