Coral Gables, Fl 33134
Performing at Seraphic Fire-First United Methodist Church (Dec 21 - Dec 21)
Messiah is not available as part of a subscription package.
Composed in 1741, Messiah has been a staple of the choral-orchestral repertoire since its first performance. From the excitement of “For Unto Us a Child is Born” to the magnificence of the “Hallelujah Chorus,” Seraphic Fire continues a South Florida tradition with its annual performances of Handel’s magnum opus.
Founded in 2002 by Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, professional chamber choir Seraphic Fire has garnered critical acclaim both locally and nationally. In an exciting crossover collaboration in 2004, Seraphic Fire was invited to record with international pop-star Shakira on a track for her album Oral Fixation II, which ultimately went Platinum. Seraphic Fire has released four CD recordings to date and will release a fifth next year to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610. In September of 2007, The John S. & James L. Knight Foundation awarded a grant to Seraphic Fire for the formation of a new chamber orchestra.
