Don’t miss Canterbury Voices’ encore performance of Eugene Goossens’ arrangement of Handel’s masterwork, Messiah! In 2017, over 2000 took in the lush arrangement featuring a full orchestra, with two harps, four horns, and a full wind section from the Oklahoma City Philharmonic, in addition to Canterbury’s choir of over 140 voices. Because of that concert’s massive success, Canterbury is presenting it again in 2019. In this grandiose arrangement, the stage is full of musicians and the impact is unforgettable. Whether it’s the gentle melody of the opening words “Comfort ye”, or the sheer invigorating “Hallelujah” chorus, this concert will be inspiring!


Canterbury will host its annual Holiday Reception after the concert in the Civic Center lobby. The reception includes home-baked cookies from our adult chorus and punch. Santa and Mrs Claus will be in attendance for photos.
