Essence of Harmony Choral Society presents Handel’s Messiah in Westampton

Handel’s Messiah in WestamptonThe Essence of Harmony Choral Society a relatively new community music organization welcomes in the 2021 year-end holiday season with a presentation of Handel’s Messiah. The oratorio was composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel and will be presented with a 12-piece orchestra at the Burlington County Library Auditorium in Westhampton, NJ. In addition, they will be joined by 4 professional soloists from the Tri-State area: Soprano Silky Carter, Counter-Tenor Andrew Darling, Tenor George Johnson, and Bass Cyrus Fitzgerald. The choir is conducted by Cherisse R. Bonefont. THE MESSIAH is a musical rite of the holiday season. G. F. Händel composed the Messiah in just three and four weeks in August and September 1741. “He would literally write from morning to night,” noted the Handel Museum House in London. The piece was originally designed for the Easter season, but soon became a Christmas favorite for singers and audiences.
