London Handel Festival

The Texas State Chorale, under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Babcock, was one of only two choirs in the United States selected to perform in the London Handel Orchestra’s special spring London Handel Festival.

Each December the London Handel Orchestra, under the direction of Laurence Cummings, presents Messiah from Handel’s own place of worship, St. George’s Cathedral in Hanover Square, London.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the December 2020 performance was presented via livestream. 

The overwhelming success of this event gave birth to a special Easter Monday performance. This April 5th event featured choirs from the UK and around the world, one of which is our very own Texas State Chorale under the direction of Dr. Jonathan Babcock.

The Texas State Chorale prepared three choruses from Messiah as part of the Sing At Home Chorus. The event was presented via livestream on social media to a worldwide audience.
