Bach Collegium San Diego to present the Dublin version of Handel’s Messiah in Rancho Santa Fe

Bach Collegium San Diego (BCSD), the city’s only early music performance ensemble, presents the 1742 Dublin version of G.F. Handel’s great oratorio Messiah to celebrate the holiday season on Dec. 8 in Rancho Santa Fe at the Church of the Nativity and Dec. 9 in La Jolla at St James by-the-Sea Episcopal Church . Immediately following those performances, the company leaves for its New York City debut on Dec. 14.

These are the only performances of the complete Messiah in San Diego this season, and the only Messiah performed with period instruments.
