Guest Director Paul Agnew’s “longstanding strengths as a singer–nourish his supple direction, and help him deftly exploit the theatrical practices implicit in this sacred music.” - BBC Music Magazine

Featuring Cappella Romana and a quartet of Juilliard trained soloists:
Christine Price, soprano
Jakub Orlinski, countertenor
Paul Agnew, tenor
Alex Rosen, bass

Messiah is arguably the most-performed work in all of musical history, and with good reason. As reported in Opera News in May 2017, Paul Agnew will conduct and sing the tenor role in this year’s production, adding another dimension to the Messiah experience.
