Can you Handel this?

The Messiah is coming to Vancouver

The Archdiocese of Vancouver invites everyone to its co-sponsoring of the Vancouver Chamber Choir's performance of Handel's Messiah at the Orpheum Theatre Dec. 10.

The Messiah, written by the Baroque composer in 1741, is one of his most popular works of choral music. Its movements cover the prophecy of salvation, Christ's sacrifice, and the promise of resurrection from the dead.

The archdiocese is selling half of the 2,800 tickets for that night. Tickets are available for $42 or $30.75 at parish and Catholic school offices and online.

Because the tickets will be available through parishes, parishioners will save on taxes and Ticketmaster service charges.
