73rd Community 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.
CHILDREN — Recommended for ages 6 and older. Helpful links to artists and show information will help you decide who is likely to enjoy the show. Please also consider the start time and length of the show when deciding whether to bring children.
Monday - Friday: 9am-5pm*
