The Winston-Salem Symphony’s annual performances of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 12 and Wednesday, Dec. 13. This year marks the Symphony’s 11th year performing what has become a Triad holiday favorite and is widely regarded as music’s most powerful message of faith.

Conducted by Maestro Robert Moody, music director, the ‘Messiah’ is a spiritual experience perfect for the holiday season.

The concerts will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Centenary United Methodist Church, 646 W. Fifth St., Winston-Salem. Tickets are $15 to $47 and can be purchased online at or by phone at 336-464-0145.

The Winston-Salem Symphony’s performances of the ‘Messiah’ will feature The Robert Moody Chorale, 20 high caliber professional singers personally selected by Maestro Moody performing alongside 25 Symphony musicians, Handel’s original instrumentation. Members of this exceptional vocal ensemble will cover all choral parts and arias of the Messiah.

Centenary United Methodist Church provides a beautiful, spiritual setting for the music with seasonal decorations including greenery, poinsettias, and a large illuminated Moravian star. The musicians, the voices, and the location create a unique and magical experience.
