The Long Beach Camerata Singers will present Handel’s Messiah on Saturday, Dec. 4 at 4:30pm at the Beverly O’Neill Theater at the Long Beach Performing Arts Center, 300 E. Ocean Blvd.
The 80-voice choir will present the work with a Baroque orchestra— composed of professionals from area symphonies— and four professional soloists, after a pre-concert lecture by Matt Netto at 3:30pm.
The group’s new artistic director, Dr. Rob Istad, will conduct, welcoming four guest soloists for the occasion: soprano Maria Christina Navarro, mezzo-sopranno Jane Shim, tenor Brent Wilson and baritone Matthew Kellaway.

“Handel’s Messiah is one of the greatest works among the finest masterworks of all history,” Istad said. “Within his stunning setting of Charles Jennens’s libretto, Händel captured the mystery of God and the majesty of life in a way that continues to resonate with audiences of all ages. The story of Jesus’s birth, life and resurrection is alive within his score. His music and the remarkable story are as timeless today as they were at Messiah’s 1742 premiere in Dublin.”

Preferred-seating tickets are $50. General admission is $40. Student tickets for $10 will be available at the door with student I.D. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit lbcamerata.org or call (562) 373-5654.
