In this participatory program, producer Melissa Gerstein and conductor Douglas Anderson team up again to bring Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” – from his Messiah oratorio, the oldest continuously performed piece of classical music – out of the concert hall and onto the city streets. On the day of the parade, singers will descend on various popular locations across Manhattan and gather into vocal groups. Singers and their conductor will then synchronize their performance with the sound file played on a portable speaker, and make their way among the crowds.
