International Music Foundation

Celebrating its 42nd glorious year, the Do-It-Yourself Messiah will take place on Monday, December 18 and Tuesday, December 19 at 7:00PM. The performances will take place through the generosity of our sponsors: Wintrust Financial Corp., Performance Trust Companies, and an anonymous donor. 

The music of Handel comes to life in Chicago every Christmas with his magnificent Messiah performed by a chorus of thousands, world-class soloists and a full orchestra of local professional and amateur volunteer musicians. Because of the length and nature of the event, it is not suitable for children under the age of 6.
