St. Paul's Chapel
Broadway and Fulton Street

Trinity Church Wall Street presents its acclaimed performance of Handel’s Messiah conducted by Julian Wachner, the director of music and the arts.

Messiah and Trinity have a long history – Trinity presented one of the first performances of the work in North America in 1770, and the GRAMMY®-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Trinity Baroque Orchestra are still widely regarded as some of the greatest interpreters of the work. Last year, The New York Times described Trinity’s presentation as “perhaps the essential New York ‘Messiah.’ With the church’s choir and the Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Mr. Wachner provides gritty, gutsy, edge-of-the-seat performances.”

Please note that due to the rejuvenation of Trinity Church, this year’s performances will take place at St. Paul’s Chapel at Broadway and Fulton Street with floor and balcony seating. Some seats are limited view or monitor-only view; ticket prices have been adjusted accordingly.

Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the beginning of the performance. There will be no late seating within the first half of the concert, so those arriving late cannot be accommodated until intermission.

Running time: 3 hours with one 20-minute intermission.

All seats reserved

Orchestra Front/Front Balcony (Full view) ~ $100
Orchestra Rear/Mid Balcony (Limited view) ~ $75
Orchestra Side/Rear Balcony (Limited view) ~ $50
Rear Balcony (No direct view; monitor-only view) ~ $25

NOTE: Charges will appear on your credit card statement as "GOTHAM EARLY MUSIC SCENE" (not Trinity Church). Please do not be alarmed when you see this charge designation.
