See this white-wigged fellow? He’s been dead for quite some time, but he’s still mighty popular—especially around this time of the year. He’s George Friedrich Handel, the German-born British composer of numerous operas, chamber works, concertos, arias, songs and oratorios—most famously, the oratorio The Messiah.
This Sunday afternoon, the Octavo Singers will sing the whole thing at Union College, under the direction of Curtis Funk. We feel safe in promising that it will be a glorious sound.
Octavo Singers will perform Sunday (Dec. 15) at 3 PM in the acoustically gorgeous (and aesthetically handsome) Union College Memorial Chapel (Union College, Schenectady). Tickets are $20, $15 seniors and $10 students with ID. For more info, visit octavosingers.com or call 253-7088.
