POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Classical radio station WRHV will be airing the Hudson Valley Philharmonic’s performance of Handel’s “Messiah” at 1 p.m. on Christmas Day.
The concert -- a spiritually moving and communal holiday experience -- was recorded live on Saturday, Dec. 19, at the Ulster Performing Arts Center in Kingston. It will be aired on the radio station’s “No Ticket Required” program.
According to UPAC, a sold-out performance last season by the Philharmonic and Cappella Festiva bought audience members to their feet for the Halleluiah chorus.
It was directed by Christine Howlett.
The 24-hour station is available on your radio dial at WRHV-FM 88.7 in the Poughkeepsie area, and at WMHT-FM 89.1 in the state’s Capital Region.
It is also available via HD radio.
