Many Messiahs

Mini-Documentary and Artist Panel

2pm Pacific/5pm Eastern

The diverse collaborators on the Many Messiahs team create new songs using material from Handel’s Messiah, amplifying the work’s powerful themes of awakening and activism. As a first step toward a full concert production with chorus and orchestra, Many Messiahs is releasing a mini-documentary this holiday season, produced by IndieFlix with support from Early Music Seattle.

Join the artists for a live panel discussion and Q&A hosted by music critic Jordannah Elizabeth.

Many Messiahs artistic director (and frequent EMS collaborator) Aaron Grad shared more about the project in these guests posts for our newsletter, Clef Notes:

Part I: Why We Need Many Messiahs
