Holiday Remix: Plugging in the Messiah

Nominated for Classical:Next’s 2017 Innovation Award, the third iteration of Soundstreams’ Electric Messiah reshapes Handel’s holiday classic to create a strikingly modern and immersive experience from December 4-6 at the Drake Underground (Hallelujah!). Featuring a special performance by turntablist SlowPitchSound, join members of the cast for a behind-the-scenes look at the wiring of Electric Messiah—a musical exploration of holiday traditions and what they mean to us today. Bring your own holiday records for spinning, and join in the fun! Before the performance, take a docent-led tour of the Gardiner’s annual 12 Trees exhibition, co-curated by novelist and visual artist Douglas Coupland and Ben Mills of Public Art Management, and inspired by the theme “Let There Be Light”.
