Too Hot to Handel: The Jazz-Gospel Messiah
Saturday, January 19 @ 7:30PM
Sunday, January 20@ 3PM
It’s always cold outside this time of year, but it’s hot inside the Auditorium Theatre! Warm up with celebrated soloists Rodrick Dixon, Alfreda Burke, and Karen Marie Richardson — joined by famed Detroit pianist Alvin Waddles and over 100 Chicago musicians and singers — as they put a blues, jazz, gospel, and rock twist on Handel’s classic oratorio. Celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s vision of creating a “beloved community” as people from all across the city and beyond come together under one roof to be a part of this “joyously interactive, everybody-clap-your-hands experience” (Chicago Tribune).
$15 student tickets are available online using the code GOLDRUSH at AuditoriumTheatre.org. Valid ID required for pick up, 2 tickets per ID. Online ticket sales end 90 minutes prior to showtime, but seats will be available for purchase at the door.
