A century of Messiahs.

Every performance of Handel’s Messiah is a special event, and Auckland Choral’s 2018 performance will be extra-special, as it is the choir’s hundredth consecutive Messiah. Since the choir’s founding in 1855 there have only been 2 exceptions – the outbreak of World War I and the u epidemic of 1918.

To celebrate this momentous century of Messiahs, the choir will be joined by visiting singers from choral groups near and far, and a stunning line-up of soloists will lead the choir, including Metropolitan Opera star Heather Johnson, New Zealand’s most famous tenor Simon O’Neill, and bass Martin Snell whose “Trumpet Shall Sound” stays in the memory all year round. Join us again to welcome this year’s Christmas and to be part of our amazing “one hundred-not-out” tradition.

- Marlene Decor, soprano
- Heather Johnson, mezzo-soprano
