“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…”

Is it possible to have Christmas without Messiah? Performances of Handel’s beloved oratorio have long been an Advent tradition, but this year Adelaide gets an extra-special treat.

Directing the ASO will be Christian Curnyn, a Handel specialist from the UK. Joining him is a quartet of the best Australian soloists and our own world-class Adelaide Chamber Singers in the glorious Elder Hall.

With thanks to our friends at the ASO, 1079 Life has a double pass to giveaway for the performance on Thursday 13 December at 7:30pm

To enter, simply tell us the name of the person who wrote the libretto -that is, the words not the music – to Messiah (hint: it wasn’t Handel!)

Winners will be notified on air Monday on 1079 Life.

Competition now closed – book below to see Messiah

Handel’s music brings a disparate collection of Bible verses together into one of the greatest stories ever told, embracing the most tender human emotions alongside visions of cosmic significance. Come along and hear the angels sing!


“Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, goodwill towards men”
