THE STORY OF MESSIAH 2.0

INTRODUCTION

 Messiah 2.0, a new arrangement of Handel’s classic Holiday masterpiece, adds the modern instruments (guitars, bass, drums, percussion and keyboards) to the traditional Messiah experience.  The new sounds complement the original score while adding a whole new level of excitement and inspiration.

THE PRINCIPALS

The conductor of the December 2017 concerts was Emilily Kosasih, and she currently teaches piano at Community Music School in Trappe and is an adjunct conducting instructor at Temple University.  Mark Edwards, the arranger and producer, is a graduate of West Chester University and works freelance as a musician, conductor, composer, and educator.

CHORUS

The chorus of the December 2017 concerts consisted of wonderful talented singers from all over the greater Southeastern Pennsylvania area.

Thanks guys!
