Handel’s Messiah,
Winston-Salem Symphony’s
Annual Holiday Classic
Set for December 15 and 16

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (NOVEMBER 9, 2015) – The Winston-Salem Symphony’s annual performance of Handel’s Messiah will take place on Tuesday, December 15 and Wednesday, December 16. Widely regarded as music’s most powerful message of faith, this is the Symphony’s ninth year performing what has become a Triad holiday favorite. Conducted by Maestro Robert Moody, Music Director, Handel’s Messiah is a truly spiritual experience perfect for the holiday season.

The concerts, presented by Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, LLP, will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $15 – $47 and can be purchased online at WSsymphony.org or by phone 336-464-0145.

The Winston-Salem Symphony’s performances of the Messiah will feature 28 high-caliber professional singers personally selected by Maestro Moody performing alongside the Symphony. Members of this exceptional vocal ensemble will cover all choral parts and arias.

“I look forward to performing Messiah each year. It is an extraordinarily moving piece of music,” says Moody. “No Christmas season is complete without it. I am excited that this year will feature a stellar group of professional guest singers. They hail from around the country. Some will be familiar to Winston-Salem as they have performed with the Symphony and Piedmont Opera in recent years.”

These concerts are sponsored by Messiah Presenting Sponsor, Kilpatrick, Townsend & Stockton, LLP; as well as the Arts Council of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County and the North Carolina Arts Council.
