  • George Frideric Handel: Dance Suite from Almira

This year our popular winter tradition of candlelit performances in First Christian Church includes a selection of pieces by our namesake, including the moving Ave verum corpus performed with the internationally-acclaimed University of Oregon Chamber Choir. OMP’s assistant conductor, Nicholas Sharma, debuts with a suite from Purcell’s “Abdelazer,” which includes the melody that served as the basis for Britten’s well-known Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. A lively dance suite from Handel’s opera Almira and the rousing overture to Reinhard Keiser’s comic opera The Ridiculous Prince Jodelet will send you into the holiday season with good spirits.
