Music Director Xian Zhang conducted Handel’s masterwork—a Christmastime tradition in concert halls across the world.

Soprano Erin Wall, mezzo-soprano Nancy 
Moultsby, tenor Miles Mykkanen and bass-baritone Michael Sumuel joined 
the Orchestra and choir.

The Star-Ledger has praised the NJSO’s 
performances of the masterwork with the Montclair State University 
Singers, writing that the choir “sounded stunningly professional under 
the direction of Heather J. Buchanan” and praising the Orchestra for “an
 elegant, heartfelt performance … Together, orchestra, chorus, conductor
 and soloists brought out the work’s many shades, and delivered that one
 particular seasonal requirement, a rousing ‘Hallelujah.’”


The Orchestra invited the audience to 
participate in the centuries-old tradition of standing at the beginning 
of the Messiah’s “Hallelujah Chorus.”
