Four current and former CCM students will be featured soloists in the upcoming performance of Handel’s Messiah by the Cincinnati Boychoir. On December 11-12, soloists Kelly Ballou (soprano), John Holiday (countertenor), Ian McEuen (tenor) and Michael Dauterman (baritone) will join the boys and men of the Cincinnati Boychoir as they perform Part I (the Christmas portion) of Handel’s masterpiece along with other holiday favorites. Outside of New York, Cincinnati will be the only place in the U.S. in 2010 where a choir of boys and men will perform Messiah.
Collegium Cincinnati, a collection of local professional musicians, will accompany the Boychoir, and Stephan Casurella, music director at Christ Church Cathedral, will play continuo for the performances. The Cincinnati Boychoir is under the direction of Christopher Eanes.
