In addition to plenty of luxury real estate to choose from, Santa Fe also has a thriving arts and culture side to it. Every month of the year, at least one significant event can be enjoyed, regardless of whether you prefer fine art, delicious food, wine or otherwise. This November, Handel’s famed composition, “Messiah” will be performed by the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus at the Lensic Performing Arts Center.
Handel’s “Messiah” is a world-famous composition that is perfect for the holiday season, and the Santa Fe Symphony will certainly do this incredible performance justice. Guest conductor Gary Thor Wedow and choral director Dr. Linda Raney will combine forces to put on one of the most memorable shows of the year when they take the reins of the orchestra on November 19 at 7:00 pm local time.
Because this particular composition has some pretty spectacular and notable solos, it should come as no surprise that the symphony is planning to put some of its best, up-and-coming musicians into the spotlight. This performance will include standout moments from four guest soloists – Devon Guthrie, Joshua Dennis, Joseph Beutel and Daryl Freedman. All four of these stellar musicians have graduated from Santa Fe Opera’s Apprentice Program, making them soon-to-be hometown heroes. The Symphony recognizes them as “rising stars” and you should not miss your chance to see them in action this November.
Tickets are available through the Santa Fe ticketing portal, and more information about the performance can be found through the Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus main website. Enjoy the show, and happy holidays!
