Resplendent in his powdered wig and 18th-century garb, Herr Handel (aka Director of the Tafelmusik Chamber Choir Ivars Taurins) leads the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, a stellar cast of soloists — soprano Suzie LeBlanc, countertenor Daniel Taylor, tenor Rufus Müller, and baritone Locky Chung — and a mass audience choir made up of some 1,000 Tafelmusik fans as they perform Handel's baroque masterpiece. A beloved Toronto tradition, Tafelmusik’s annual Sing-Along Messiah has become a revered family ritual for many Torontonians over the past 25 years. This unique audience-participation phenomenon sells out every year, and participants are genuinely moved by the experience of joining their voices with hundreds of others to make music.  This film was produced by the award-winning 90th Parallel Productions and originally telecast by Bravo!. Ivars Taurins received a Gemini Award nomination for his role in this film. BONUSES: The DVD includes five bonus audio tracks of Tafelmusik Chamber Choir performing music by Handel, Bach, Vivaldi and Mondonville.
