Handel’s Messiah

Messiah is one of the best known and most performed choral works in the western canon. This oratorio was composed by George Frideric Handel in just three weeks in 1741.

Since then, performances of Messiah have been literally countless, its impact incalculable.

The Illawarra Choral Society performs Messiah every second year in the Wollongong Town Hall with its magnificent organ. The choir will continue this tradition in December 2019 and will, once again, attempt to raise the roof of the Town Hall with our performance of the Hallelujah Chorus. Under the baton of Musical Director Meryl Jackson-Kew, the choir will be joined by guest soloists, organ and orchestra.
