The first half of December shows us an embarrassment of riches, with almost every music group in the Kansas City area in performance. Most of these are offering holiday concerts, ranging a 200-performer extravaganza of Handel’s “Messiah” by the Kansas City Symphony and an elegant offering of Renaissance holiday music by the Tallis Scholars via Friends of Chamber Music. Holiday vocal concerts will be performed by The Kansas City Chorale, Musica Sacra, Heartland Men’s Chorus, Kansas City Kantorei, William Baker Festival Singers, and choirs from our two local music conservatories.
