George Frideric Handel: Messiah

It’s Southeastern Virginia’s grandest Messiah! Iconic music including the Hallelujah chorus portrays one of the greatest stories ever told. This year will feature the full Christmas portion in addition to selections from the second and third parts of this sacred masterpiece which are sure to inspire. Norfolk native Anthony Parnther delighted audiences during his appearance with the VSO in 2023, and we’re delighted to invite him back to the podium!

Anthony Parnther is Music Director of California’s San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra, and one of today’s foremost film conductors. A master of multiple genres, his schedule includes engagements with orchestras like the New York Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Los Angeles Philharmonic alongside scoring sessions for projects like Avatar: The Way of the Water, Oppenheimer, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Encanto, and more.
