NC Symphony: Messiah Choruses

When: Fri., Dec. 2, 12 & 8 p.m. and Sat., Dec. 3, 8 p.m. 2016

Christmas music is pretty all-inclusive these days—mambo versions of “Frosty the Snowman” share space on store play lists with over-serious versions of “Little Drummer Boy” and kitschy Louis Armstrong baubles. If all this has you itching for the real Christmas classics, try this evening culminating in select choruses from Handel’s Messiah. The program begins with parts of Bach’s majestic Mass in B minor, before moving toward the modern era with Vaughan Williams and contemporary composers Eric Whitacre and Michael Torke. —David Klein

Price: $15-$80
