Messiah – Bella Voce with Callipygian Players

  • Fourth Presbyterian Church 126 East Chestnut Street Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

The Callipygian Players join Bella Voce for the 6th annual performance of Chicago's *only period-instrument, complete Messiah.  Expect breezy tempos, rapid choral melismas, gestural phrasing from the orchestra and chorus, and charismatic leadership from concertmaster Martin Davids and conductor Andrew Lewis.   Soloists step forward from the ranks of the premiere chamber choir and include:

Julia Davids
Kirsten Hedegaard
Cynthia Spiegel
Henriët Fourie Thompson

Thomas Aláan
Orna Arania
Natalie Warden

Oliver Camacho
Matthew Dean
Garrett Johannsen

Eric Miranda
Stephen Richardson
Vince Wallace

Adult $50/$45

*DISCLAIMER: For a few seasons, Callipygian Players were the only band in town offering  period instruments for Messiah.  The now defunct Baroque Band threw their hat in the ring a few years ago and now many its members play in Haymarket Opera Company Orchestra which accompanies the performance at University of Chicago.
