Sing Strongly and Carry a Big Handel

In defense of the “Big Messiah,” the Lexington Singers perform the holiday classic this weekend at the Singletary Center.  According to Rich Copley of the Lexington Herald Leader, this Messiah will buck recent trends and offer a full blown production.  And, at the Lyric Theater, there’s an off-beat holiday comedy, titled “Smackdown for the Holiday Crown.”
