Nederlandse Händelvereniging: the Messiah

The Dutch Handel Association’s annual Messiah performance has been a staple of Amsterdam’s cultural agenda for over seventy years. The bible-inspired oratorio is easily Handel’s most recognisable work, and has a near-mystical ability to draw listeners in no matter their faith. It also offers a new perspective every time you experience it, and in that spirit, the association has this year invited conductor Jules van Hessen to add his own influence. Join van Hassen, the Choir of the Dutch Handel Association and the Holland Symphony Orchestra in celebrating this remarkable masterpiece.
