The buzz is about "TOO HOT TO HANDEL" - but what is it all about?
Marin Alsop, with colleagues Bob Christianson and Gary Anderson have redefined Handel's MESSIAH.
Too Hot To Handel is captivating and delightful in breaking new 'classical' ground of the 21st century!
The Concordia Orchestra commissioned Too Hot To Handel in the early 1990's and since the first performance at Lincoln Center, the crowds have smiled, cheered, and danced in their seats (and sometimes in the aisle!).
Too Hot To Handel captures the essential core of Handel's famous piece and reinterprets it with chords of R&B, jazz, and gospel. The end result is a dynamic and uplifting celebration that must be experienced to be appreciated. Over two centuries after George Frideric Handel premiered his grand oratorio (in 1742), audiences are still enjoying the Messiah...and sold-out performances are still swinging to Too Hot To Handel .
