The Handel Project: Belshazzar

Trinity Church

After performing Bach’s entire monumental output of sacred vocal music over the past five years at Bach at One, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra turn to performing all of the oratorios of Bach’s great contemporary, George Frideric Handel. The Handel Project is a new multi-season initiative and will take place each Wednesday beginning March 8. The oratorios will be performed one act at a time, beginning with Jephtha, Belshazzar and Solomon.
