The Christmas season is filled with music, but none exemplifies the season as much as Handel’s Messiah, especially the Christmas part. It’s become a tradition to attend a performance of The Messiah in December, and there are several chances to do so in the Charlotte area in 2019. Some are sing-alongs.
Follow each link for details. This list will grow. Know of others? Let me know and I’ll try to get them onto the list.
