Greenwich Choral Society presents Handel’s oratorio Judas Maccabaeus

Greenwich Choral Society presents George Frideric Handel’s Oratorio Judas Maccabaeus Saturday, March 5, at 4:30 p.m., at Christ Church Greenwich, 254 Putnam Avenue, Greenwich. The story of the triumph of a Jewish hero over invading forces is beautifully illustrated by the composer, with lavish scoring for a 25-piece orchestra of strings, oboes, trumpets, timpani, organ and harpsichord.

As in opera, the leading roles are sung by a handful of soloists. In contrast to opera, the chorus in Handel’s oratorios is equal in importance to the soloists and always plays a central dramatic role. Come hear the 120 voices of the Greenwich Choral Society in the magnificently refurbished Sanctuary of Christ Church, Greenwich.

This performance features Soprano Alison Davy, Countertenor Nicholas Tamagna, Tenor Scott Joiner and Bass Michael Scarcelle.

Tickets are priced at $45, $38, $28 (special prices for students) and may be ordered online at or by phone at 203-622-5136.

A cornerstone of the Fairfield County music scene, Greenwich Choral Society presented its first concert in 1925 with a complement of 30 singers. Since then the group has grown to over 120 singers under the leadership of Music Director, Paul F. Mueller. Greenwich Choral Society gratefully acknowledges support from the Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism and Connecticut Arts Endowment Fund.
