Too Hot To Handel

Rackham Choir (RC) in partnership with the Detroit Opera House will present its 14th annual performance of Too Hot To Handel. 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.
