A Glorious Return

Handel's Messiah was a triumphant event

After 18 long months, the Masterworks Chorus returned to perform Handel's Messiah to a packed audience on December 5. Every available ticket had been sold in advance and emotions ran high as the chorus and guest artists sang under the skillful direction of Ken Taylor. Sounds from the Palm Beach Chamber Orchestra rang out in the church sanctuary, enhanced by the compelling cello tones from featured cellist, Frederic Renaud. The crescendo of joyous music from the Guest Soloists, Orchestra and Chorus delighted the audience so much that they bounded out of their seats for the Hallelujah Chorus, and thunderous applause followed the Great Amen.
