Handel's Messiah

SPOSNORED -- Hallelujah! San Antonio Mastersingers Present Handel's Messiah Dec. 3 Continuing a favorite annual holiday tradition, the San Antonio Mastersingers, under the baton of director Dr. John Silantien, will present Handel’s Messiah on Sunday, December 3, 2017 in two performances: 3 PM at University United Methodist Church, 5084 DeZavala Road, and 7 PM at Trinity Baptist Church, 319 E. Mulberry Avenue. The 120-voice Mastersingers chorus, orchestra and soloists will perform the oratorio’s Christmas selections, as well as the iconic “Hallelujah” Chorus. Tickets may be purchased online at www.samastersingers.org or at the door of each venue. VIP Tickets (preferred seating) are $50 and General Admission Tickets are $25. For more than 275 years, George Frederick Handel’s venerable Messiah has been performed in concert halls, stages and cathedrals and in flash mobs around the world. A holiday tradition in San Antonio, its collaborative performance by the San Antonio Mastersingers has been a popular event for years, whether at the Majestic Theatre, Tobin Center or throughout the community. The Mastersingers, as the San Antonio Symphony’s official chorus, performed Mendelssohn’s Elijah with the orchestra in October, and plans are in the works for an English-composer themed program with the Symphony in the spring. The Mastersingers also perform independently – including an annual benefit event at San Antonio’s Little Flower Basilica. The chorus has been invited to perform in Carnegie Hall, where in 2016, they presented the New York City premiere of Robert Cohen’s “Alzheimer’s Stories,” and in 2008, performed Mozart’s Solemn Vespers. Locally, the chorus has also presented concerts to raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness in addition to Alzheimer’s research. A summer 2018 concert tour in France is planned, with performances scheduled at Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral and other famous venues.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
