Messiah 2.0 is a 90-minute, traditional performance of Handel’s masterpiece accompanied by a six-piece contemporary instrumental ensemble. It includes the major selections from Parts I, II and III. While the original score remains virtually unchanged, the unified transformation is exceedingly powerful, distinctive, and reverent. It is fun to perform and a delight for audiences of all ages.

From start to finish, I was impressed by the magnitude of the sound that I can only describe as Handel playing a classic arena-rock concert, the fluid melding of disparate musical styles, and the quality selection of local performers. To my delight, it included all of the musical highlights of the original. It was an overall enjoyable experience that I would recommend to everyone.

This arrangement really “rocks” but still honors the original…
