Hallelujah! It’s time for to mark the most wonderful time of the year with Handel’s Messiah. Messiah is a time-honored tradition that offers the occasion for community to come together and embrace the comfort and joy this holiday classic unfailingly brings every year. We hope your family will join our National Philharmonic family in celebration. Tis the season!

To bring renewed social relevance, commentary, and philanthropy to NatPhil’s annual performances of Handel’s Messiah, 50 percent of the proceeds from performances at Strathmore will go toward the 2nd Century Project to raise funds for the restoration of the historic Scotland African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church.


Why We Love This Concert

  • Get into the holiday spirit!
  • The Messiah is a favorite for all members of your family! This is one of most accessible pieces of music for any age!
  • We have all heard the Hallelujah Chorus at one point or another in commercials, movies, shows, etc. Here is your opportunity to listen to the full work!
