Vocalists from OperaBox in Vancouver BC perform some of their favorite pieces from Massiah with musicians from the Portland Baroque Orchastra through the magic of the editing!
About This Performance
We are proud to present Messiah Favourites, a virtual performance of selections from Händel’s Messiah featuring singers that are all based in the west coast of Canada. In collaboration with leading orchestral members from the Portland Baroque Orchestra, we have created a cross-border production that was recorded, edited, and produced all from our respective homes!
Messiah Favourites include solos, ensembles, and orchestral highlights from the well-loved and seasonal work. Featured soloists are Chloé Hurst (soprano), Bahareh Poureslami (soprano), Emma Parkinson (alto), Isaiah Bell (tenor), and Aaron Durand (bass), accompanied by members of the Portland Baroque Orchestra led by conductor Valery Saul.
