Composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, The Messiah is one of the best-known choral works in Western music. Jesus' birth, persecution, resurrection and ascension are presented in the three-act oratorio. The story's force is delivered by a breadth of startlingly beautiful music, sure to be delivered by the North Carolina Symphony with aplomb. Music Director Grant Llewellyn helms this production featuring mezzo-soprano Jennifer Holloway, bass Robert Pomakov, tenor Benjamin Butterfield and soprano Jodi Burns. Attendees eager to learn more are invited to attend a pre-concert talk by N.C. State music professor Jonathan Kramer, or talk with the musicians after the show in the lobby. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. —Ashley Melzer
