Plan Your Holiday Concerts Now and You're Set!
Messiah in Grace Cathedral
A Baroque New Year's Eve at the Opera
Our December concerts begin with three performances of Handel’s treasured masterwork, Messiah , in San Francisco’s resounding Grace Cathedral. Jeffrey Thomas will conduct the ABS period-instrument orchestra, the acclaimed American Bach Choir, and an outstanding quartet of soloists.

“What stood out above all, in this annual rite that drew a huge crowd, was the sense of being addressed directly, personally, confidingly. Conductor Jeffrey Thomas brought it all together, melding his ABS forces with precision and intuitive responsiveness to Handel’s capacious 1742 masterwork.” Steven Winn,  SFCV
Hélène Brunet, soprano
Rebecca Powers, mezzo-soprano (debut)
Steven Brennfleck, tenor

At the end of last season’s enormously successful New Year’s Eve concert, ABS music director Jeffrey Thomas announced that we’d be back at the end of 2019 for a reprise of the event. It turned out to be one of the hottest tickets in town, so make your reservations early for a delightful program of arias and instrumental music from opera and concert. 

This early evening on the town in San Francisco’s beautiful Herbst Theatre—a jewel among the city’s most prestigious venues—will joyfully ring in the New Year in elegant style. Bring your friends and celebrate a New Year full of wonderful music!
