Hallelujah: parts of Handel’s "Messiah" to be performed in New Haven


NEW HAVEN — The New Haven Oratorio Choir & Orchestra, which is collaborating with the American Baroque Orchestra this season, will perform the "Anunciation" and the "Hallelujah" from Handel’s "Messiah," at 8 p.m. Nov. 20 at Trinity Baptist Church, 630 State St., New Haven.

In keeping with NHOCO’s mission to recapture composers’ original intent in historical works, the musicians will use period instruments and scores that have restored original material, organizers said.

The program also includes sacred music of the Russian baroque era. Admission is pay-as-you-can ($20 adults, $10 students, suggested). For more information, visit www.newhavenoratorio.org
