In this performance, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra
at Temple Square present the story of George Frideric Handel’s life
in an inspiring celebration of song. The story of Handel’s struggle
to write his most famous oratorio, Messiah, celebrates freed debtors,
charitable giving, rescued children, and the Messiah’s mission to
save God’s children from spiritual death. The music includes some
of the most beloved Christmas songs, such as “Oh, Come, All Ye
Faithful,” “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and “Joy to the World.” Guest
soloists from the Metropolitan Opera also thrill audiences with their
rendition of “For unto Us a Child Is Born,” from Handel’s Messiah.
This performance brings the listener closer to the true meaning of
Christmas with a Christ-centered focus and a thrilling display of
talent for the whole family to enjoy.
