The Detroit rendition of Handel’s “Messiah” is a unique jazz-infused version of the holiday classic that this year will return to the Detroit Opera House on Dec. 1 at 7;30 p.m.
“This soul stirring, toe-tapping rendition of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ never fails to bring audiences to their feet,” say event organizers. “It’s an exhilarating fusion of gospel, jazz and classical music performed by the Rackham Symphony Choir, the Too Hot Orchestra and an all-star cast of soloists. This is a celebration unlike any other.”
The performance will feature renowned musicians Roderick Dixon, Alfreda Burke, Karen Marie Richardson, Marion Hayden, Alvin Waddles and Dave Taylor. Playing along will be the Too Hot Orchestra and the performance will be conducted by Artistic Director Suzanne Mallare Acton.
