Lauded by the Times as having the “Most majestic ‘Hallelujah,’” in New York City, the Oratorio Society of New York (OSNY) returns to Carnegie Hall for its 147th annual performance of Handel’s Messiah – a holiday tradition since 1874. Despite challenges surrounding COVID, OSNY has never missed an annual performance of Messiah, having held a digital performance in 2020, and in 2021, making a triumphant return to Carnegie Hall with their annual performance.
With Music Director Kent Tritle at the podium, rising soprano Maria Brea makes her OSNY debut, contralto Heather Petrie returns to OSNY, 2017 OSNY Oratorio-Solo Competition 1st Prize-winner Joshua Blue is the tenor soloist, and baritone Jesse Blumberg returns to sing with the Society.
