Why See Too Hot To Handel?

Handel's Jazzy, Blues-y, Gospel Messiah returns!

It's been hailed as the holiday celebration that is "too hot to miss", this Detroit-flavored version of Handel's Messiah is the perfect jazz, gospel, blues and soul celebration for the Motor City. Back for just one performance only, this event always boasts some local jazz legends alongside the Too Hot orchestra and Rackham Symphony Choir.

Too Hot To Handel is a vibrant celebration of the fusion of classical and contemporary styles, and an energetic reinterpretation of Handel's Messiah - one of the world's most iconic pieces of Christmas music. A must-see for fans of gospel, blues and jazz music!
