Handel’s Messiah and Trinity have a long history—Trinity presented one of the first performances of the work in North America in 1770, and the Grammy-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra are still widely regarded as peerless interpreters of the work. In 2016, Trinity gave two performances at Trinity Church, another at Alice Tully Hall, and took the performance on tour with concerts in New Jersey and California. This year, there will be three opportunities to hear the masterpiece in Trinity Church.

Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the performance. There will be no late seating within the first half of the concert, so those arriving late cannot be accommodated until intermission.
