Join us for this beloved OCM annual holiday tradition as we fill the basilica of Saint-Joseph’s Oratory with the comfort and joy of Handel’s richly expressive oratorio. Conductors Boris Brott and Xavier Brossard-Ménard lead a wonderful quartet of soloists: soprano Jacqueline Woodley, mezzo-soprano Marie-Andrée Mathieu, tenor Antoine Bélanger, bass-baritone Neil Craighead, and the vocal ensemble Les Rugissants in this timeless masterpiece of love and hope. The performance is available in-person or via web broadcast.

At the start of this concert, the OCM honours Suzanne Fortier, McGill University’s Principal and Vice-chancellor.
