Saint Thomas is celebrating the Christmas season with Handel’s timeless Messiah performed by the Saint Thomas Choir of Men and Boys and New York Baroque Incorporated. The concert will begin at 7:30 each night, and the holiday tradition will continue on December 14 with A Ceremony of Carols, providing a meditative respite from the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Season.

Daniel Hyde conducts the Boys of the Saint Thomas Choir along with award-winning harpist Bridget Kibbey. The piece, written for harp and boys’ choir, unifies the various carols of the Christmas story with a blend of starkness and shivering beauty. The program will also feature works for choir and harp by Ireland and Hadley, as well as pieces for solo harp by Bach, Britten, and Agócs.
