Drogheda Classical Music - Messiah with Irish Baroque Orchestra & Chamber Choir Ireland

Saturday, 17 December 2022, 7.30pm

Themes of comfort, hope and joy run through Handel’s epic Messiah. One of his most popular works which famously received its premiere in Dublin in 1742. Under the direction of Peter Whelan, the Irish Baroque Orchestra, Chamber Choir Ireland and soloists tell this wonderful story in what is sure to be an ideal lead in to Christmas.

The Irish Baroque Orchestra is acclaimed as Ireland’s flagship period music ensemble and delivers historically-informed performances to the highest standards across Ireland and abroad. Under the artistic direction of Peter Whelan, scholarship and musical excellence converge in a unique way through the IBO’s work. This creates an original offering like no other organisation on the Irish classical music scene. Through this integration of research and practice the very idea of an orchestra is defined afresh, providing an unusual and enriching experience for today’s audiences.

All concerts take place in St Peter’s Church of Ireland, Drogheda and unless otherwise stated, begin at 7:30pm. Individual Concert Tickets are €20 (€18 conc.) with a Season Ticket for €150 for all concerts including all events and concerts as part of Tara Erraught’s weekend (applies to full price tickets only).
