72nd Community Messiah
Handel’s masterpiece: MESSIAH!
You’re invited to a grand and important Anchorage tradition that is the perfect start to the holiday season!
Since 1947, local singers and musicians have gathered to present Handel’s MESSIAH, now organized by Anchorage Concert Chorus. That first performance is what started it all for ACC — the Chorus grew out of that landmark cultural event organized by legendary ACC founder Lorene Harrison.
Once again, this year’s concert will include selections from Handel’s iconic treasure conducted by ASD’s Dr. Bruce Wood with local soloists, over 150 volunteer Messiah chorus members, and the Messiah orchestra.
72nd Community Messiah is presented by Anchorage Concert Chorus.
Runs approximately 2 hours including intermission.
BABIES — Ticket required for all ages.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 6 and older.
For this family event, a higher level of audience noise will be permitted. Disruptive patrons of any age will be expected to exit the show.
DAY OF SHOW: CenterTix sales end at 8:00 AM. The venue box office opens 1 hour before the show for last minute ticket sales and will call.
