December 8, 2019

The holiday vibe is in full swing, and Sunday Night at the Opera with host Alexa Petrenko is no exception. Here’s what she has in store for you tonight:

“Handel’s most famous oratorio, the Messiah, marks the beginning of the Christmas season all over the English speaking world.  I’ll tell you the background behind it and play you highlights from the classic EMI recording with Sir Andrew Davis conducting the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and soloists Kathleen Battle,  Florence Quivar, John Aler, and Samuel Ramey.”

Sunday Night at the Opera airs Sunday nights at 9 PM on The New Classical FM. classicalfm.ca
