Ang Santos: This is an interesting program. We have a combination of music, gospel, jazz…bring us into this program a little bit. What should people expect when they come to see this?
Chris Whitaker: This is a version of ‘Handel’s Messiah’ like you’ve never heard before. It’s basically like Handel landed in the 21stcentury and crafted a modern oratorio for our time. It’s the original ideas, melodies, and lyrics from the Messiah, but it’s reimagined though a contemporary lens.
AS: A venue could really make or break this kind of show, am I correct?
