An annual holiday tradition with the TSO for over 80 years, Handel's powerful and passionate Messiah will fill Roy Thomson Hall for five stirring performances tonight, December 17, 18, 20, 21 and 22. Scroll down for photos of the orchestra and singers in rehearsal!

This season, Maestro Christopher Warren-Green, who conducted the London Chamber Orchestra at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be joined by the 140 voices of the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, soprano Klara Ek, countertenor Lawrence Zazzo (making his TSO début), tenor John Tessier, and bass-baritone John Relyea for this joyful concert.

About the TSO: Founded in 1922, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra is one of Canada's most important cultural institutions recognized internationally as an outstanding orchestra. Currently celebrating his 10th season as Music Director, Peter Oundjian continues to lead the Orchestra with a commitment to innovative programming and audience development with performances that range from Masterworks to New Creations, Young People's Concerts to Pops, all showcasing the exceptional talents of the Orchestra along with a roster of distinguished guest artists and conductors. In addition to the concert season, the TSO serves the larger community with TSOUNDCHECK, the original under-35 discount ticket programme, the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, and through music education and outreach programmes which connect students with acclaimed curriculum-based programming.
