messiah2018

Hard to believe! It was 20 years ago, almost to the day, that Quinte Symphony (known then as the Eastern Ontario Concert Orchestra) performed Handel’s Messiah with the Belleville Choral Society. What better setting for this Handel’s glorious oratorio than the historic Bridge St. Church!

The Quinte Symphony’s performance of Handel’s Messiah with the Belleville Choral Society is supported by Quinte Broadcasting company and the City of Belleville.
