Do-It-Yourself Messiah – International Music Foundation

  • Harris Theater for Music and Dance 205 East Randolph Street Chicago, IL, 60601 United States (map)

Celebrating its 41st glorious year, the Do-It-Yourself Messiah will take place on Tuesday, December 20 and Wednesday, December 21 at 7:00 p.m. The performances will take place through the generosity of our sponsors: Wintrust Financial Corp., Performance Trust Companies, and an anonymous donor. 

The music of Handel comes to life in Chicago every Christmas with his magnificent Messiah performed by a chorus of thousands, world-class soloists and a full orchestra of local professional and amateur volunteer musicians. 

Because of the length and nature of the event, it is not suitable for children under the age of 6.  

$15 tickets will be available beginning at Noon on Tuesday, November 15 at the Harris Theater box office, by phone at 312-334-7777, or on-line at
