Sell-Out Alert: Kick Off the Holiday Season with ‘Messiah’ at the National Cathedral

Few events at the National Cathedral compare to the goosebump-inducing majesty of a full-throated “Hallelujah Chorus” from Handel’s “Messiah” sung by professional vocalists accompanied by a sold-out nave of holiday revelers.

Don’t miss your chance to be part of this unforgettable show when the Washington National Cathedral Baroque Orchestra and the Cathedral Choir take the stage for three performances beginning noon on Saturday, December 4, with a special concert — shortened, and ideal for children — followed by extended encore performances December 4 and Sunday, December 5, at 4 p.m.

G.F. Handel’s “Messiah” will resound around the classic and historic Neo-Gothic ecclesiastical architecture of the famed National Cathedral and will not only get you ready for the holidays but will stay with you for weeks to come.

Tickets are on sale now but will, if tradition holds, sell out soon.

Tickets for the abbreviated family performance on December 4 at noon are available online.
Tickets for the December 4, 4 p.m. and December 5, 4 p.m. shows can also be purchased online.

The Washington National Cathedral is at 3101 Wisconsin Avenue NW.
