December 13, 14, and 17, 2018, at 7:30pm; December 16, 2018, at 3pm
St. Paul’s Chapel, Broadway and Fulton Street
The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra; Julian Wachner, conductor
Trinity Church Wall Street presents its acclaimed performance of Handel’s Messiah conducted by Julian Wachner, the Director of Music and the Arts. 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 some of the greatest interpreters of the work. Last year, the New York Times described Trinity’s presentation as “perhaps the essential New York ‘Messiah.’ With the church’s choir and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Mr. Wachner provides gritty, gutsy, edge-of-the-seat performances.”
Please note that due to the rejuvenation of Trinity Church, this year’s performances will take place at St. Paul’s Chapel at Broadway and Fulton Street with floor and balcony seating. Some seats are limited view or monitor-only view; ticket prices have been adjusted accordingly. Click here to view the seating chart for St. Paul's Chapel.
