A classic Cape Town musical treat at one of the oldest church buildings in South Africa.
Join the Symphony Choir of Cape Town for a glorious, uplifting performance of the much loved Handel’s Messiah in the historic Lutheran Church, a testament to proud heritage and architectural merit, with pulpit and carvings by Anton Anreith.
Handel’s Messiah at the Lutheran Church
First performed in 1741, Handel’s Messiah is one of the most beloved choral works on earth, with some of the members of the Symphony Choir even having performed the songs in New York. On 21 December, you’ll have the opportunity to hear the Symphony Choir of Cape Town perform this revered classic, which includes the popular “Unto us a Son is Born” and “Hallelujah” and “Amen” at one of the oldest churches in South Africa. The Lutheran Church on Strand Street is a grand venue dating back to the 18th century, and is hidden away from the bustle of the city – a fitting space for such a spiritual performance.
