A Classical Christmas tradition

The KSO renews its December tradition of “A Classical Christmas,” this year on a grander scale than ever before, featuring Handel’s Messiah with the Knoxville Choral Society, at the Tennessee Theatre. This performance also includes holiday favorites like Leroy Anderson’s Suite of Carols and other light classics, and the Messiah performance will comprise the seasonally appropriate Part I, plus timeless arias including “I Know That My Redeemer Liveth” and “The Trumpet Shall Sound,” and of course the Hallelujah Chorus! “A Classical Christmas” comes just in time to get you and yours in the holiday spirit. This popular performance sold out the past four years, so patrons should be sure to secure their subscriptions early.
