A Chicago holiday tradition since 1976, the Do-It-Yourself Messiah brings together a world-class conductor and soloists, an all-volunteer orchestra of local professionals and amateur musicians and actively encourages the thousands of audience members to step into the role of the chorus in a thrilling performance of George Frideric Handel’s masterpiece, Messiah.

This year’s Messiah will once again be led by world-renowned Maestro Stanley Sperber, who is returning for his 19th year, and feature several local Chicago-based musicians and soloists. Among those scheduled to perform are soprano Michelle Areyzaga, countertenor Ryan Belongie, tenor John Tessier, bass-baritone Mark S. Doss, organist Aaron Krister Johnson, harpsichordist David Schrader, trumpeter Paul Semanic and concertmaster Richard Young.
