The North Carolina Master Chorale 2016-17 season opens with Alexander’s Feast by G.F. Handel, subtitled The Power of Music: An Ode in Honour of St. Cecilia’s Day. The performance will be held on Saturday, October 22, at 3:00 pm in Hayes Barton Baptist Church, located at 1800 Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh.

There is no mistaking the composer of this score, with its similarities to his well-known oratorio Messiah. Hear the 170-voice Chorale, soloists, and the Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle present the NCMC premiere of Alexander’s Feast.

Tickets are $25 general admission, available online. Subscriptions also available. Student-youth tickets available by calling the NCMC box office, (919) 856-9700. For more information, please visit the North Carolina Master Chorale website.
