Border Crossing: El Mesías
Friday, December 15th, 2017
Border CrosSing's third installment of its five-concert series, Puente is a concert in collaboration with the Minnesota Chorale. El Mesías brings together a bilingual version of Handel's Messiah with music by Ignacio de Jerusalem and Manuel de Sumaya that was performed in the cathedrals of Mexico during the same period. Although Messiah is frequently performed in the Twin Cities, the absence of Messiah performances at Latino community centers is a symptom of segregation. This program is meant to demonstrate that well-known standards of classical choral music can be relevant to all audiences.
