On December 2, Westchester Oratorio Society celebrates its twentieth anniversary with a performance of the renowned composition, accompanied by its Festival Orchestra, at South Salem Presbyterian Church.  The audience is the chorus during New Westchester Symphony Orchestra’s “Messiah Sing-Along” event the following afternoon, December 3, at Briarcliff Congregational Church.
