FLC Conducts Messiah!

Handel’s Messiah is an uplifting and joyful musical rite of the holiday season, capped off with the wondrous ‘Hallelujah’ chorus. Francesco brings his dramatic, acclaimed interpretation – directing the soloists, chorus, and orchestra while performing from the harpsichord.

Please note: There will not be an open Discovery Series rehearsal for this concert.
