The Northwest Sacred Music Chorale will present Parts II and III of Georg Friedrich Handel’s “Messiah” during Lent this Easter season. The work will be performed with full orchestra, 60-voice chorus and guest soloists Amy Porter, soprano; Amanda Rood, mezzo soprano; Charles Sorensson, tenor and Joshua Vander Plaats, bass.
“‘Messiah’ is not only one of the greatest works in the history of western music; it is also a “spiritual” masterpiece capturing the entire drama of redemption as depicted in the Old and New Testaments. It is a privilege to present this great work as Handel intended, just before Holy Week,” said Stan McDaniel, the music chorale’s artistic director.
Performances are March 31 at 7 p.m. and April 1 at 3 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, 812 N. Fifth St., Coeur d’Alene, and April 8 at Central Lutheran Church, 512 S. Bernard St., Spokane.
