Handel's Messiah

What: The Vancouver Chamber Choir performs Handel's finest––and most spine-tinglingly soaring––work, alongside the Pacifica Singers, Vancouver Chamber Orchestra and a sparkling roster of Canadian solo vocalists (including soprano Nathalie Paulin, countertenor Daniel Cabena, tenor Isaiah Bell and bass-baritone Stephen Hegedus). Conducted by Jon Washburn, this beloved Vancouver festive tradition is hugely popular, so be sure to buy your tickets far in advance.

When: December 7 (Vancouver)

Where: Vancouver Playhouse, 600 Hamilton Street, Vancouver

Cost: Tickets $28 to $63
