On November 23, 2019 San Jose Symphonic Choir performed Handel’s Messiah before nearly a full house at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church. One attendee was heard to say, “The Messiah evening was not only gorgeously produced by so many, and thanks partly to Handel, but the sound produced that night was absolute perfection.” On December 9, 2019, San Jose Symphonic Choir hosted its annual You Sing It Messiah at the California Theatre in San Jose. An audience of approximately 500 Handel aficionados joined the festively appointed Choir, accompanied by the San Jose Baroque Orchestra, in singing most of the movements from the Messiah.
