HANDEL & HANNUKAH: JUDAS MACCABEUS
Each year, thousands of New Yorkers assemble in concert halls and churches across New York City to hear Handel's Messiah. But there is another choral work by Handel that was also beloved in the composer's lifetime, and which tells the story of the Feast of Lights and the hero of Judea, Judas Maccabeus. In celebration of Hannukah, the GRAMMY®-nominated Clarion Choir and Clarion Orchestra join forces with one of the most celebrated American opera singers, Anthony Roth Costanzo, to perform a suite from Judas Maccabeus at historic Temple Emanu-El. The program will also include arias, duets and choruses from Handel’s Esther, Israel in Egypt, and Rodelinda.
