Handel’s Messiah — the composer’s monumental celebration of faith and the human experience — boasts a chorus known by many people (“Hallelujah”), but there’s nothing quite like hearing the entire work’s soaring grandeur live in person. And this is especially true when the composer’s masterwork is performed by the New York Philharmonic. A holiday classic for 275 years, Messiah is sure to be especially dazzling this year as maestro Alan Gilbert conducts the Philharmonic tradition for a final time as music director. Experience the piece’s timeless beauty this season at David Geffen Hall.
