Overview

THE JAZZ GOSPEL MESSIAH ~ ONE SHOW ONLY

Hailed as the holiday celebration that is “too hot to miss,” this jazz-gospel version of Handel’s classic Messiah has become a tradition for the Motor City, combining decidedly Detroit-inspired styles such as jazz and gospel while weaving in blues, swing, classical and scat. The Opera House pulses with music and the true spirit of the holidays as more than 80 musicians fill the stage, and share a soul-stirring experience with the audience.

Featuring Rackham Choir, soloists, and the Too Hot Orchestra conducted by Suzanne Acton.
