‘Hallelujah,” It’s Time Once Again for ‘The Messiah’

You don’t have to love choral music or even classical music — or even Christmas — to love G.F. Handel’s “Messiah.” I would count myself as fairly uneducated when it comes to the glories of great music but even for me, “The Messiah” is a delight to listen to.

The 2020s haven’t been a super joyful time, so the Sunday, Nov. 21, concert called Cafe Jazz, presented by Close Encounters With Music, sounds like just the right mood brightener.
