    About

    Ensemble VIII will premiere a video performance of its December 2018 concert of Handel’s Messiah on Thursday, December 17, at 7:30 p.m. The concert was held before a sold-out audience at St. Louis Catholic Church Chapel on December 14, 2018, under the direction of Artistic Director Emeritus Dr. James Morrow.

    Experience the beloved oratorio with period instruments in the vibrant and detailed clarity that Handel would have expected, with streamlined forces, expert execution, and the brilliant timbres of the Baroque instruments he himself conducted. With 13 singers and 17 instrumentalists, the concert reflects the scope and character of Handel’s own performances.

    A link to the concert will be shared with Ensemble VIII audience members who are subscribers to the group’s e-newsletter. To subscribe, please visit www.ensembleviii.org.

    The concert is free; donations are welcome.
