Welcome our Too Hot To Handel 2020 Virtual Celebration!

We’re glad you’re here. This live stream went live at 7:00 PM EST on Saturday, December 12th

In addition to live chat with Suzanne Mallare Acton, Creative Director, and the stars of THTH Rodrick Dixon, Alfreda Burke, Karen Marie Richardson, Marion Hayden, Alvin Waddles, and David Taylor, it featured old and new THTH recordings to share with you, including Marion, Alvin and David premiering a never before recorded piece, and Rackham Choir singing “Hallelujah!” along side other singers from all over the world.

While the full recording is no longer available for public viewing, here is a snippet of it: the Hallelujah Chorus recorded virtually over the past few months as part of the Hallelujah Project!

Enjoy the show!
