To say the least, George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah” has staying power. The powerful, moving oratorio is a masterpiece of Baroque music and has become a staple of holiday choral performances around the world, and in our region, since it was first performed in 1742. Kentucky Public Radio’s Charles Compton brings us the story of why it’s become, and remained, a Christmastime favorite, on this week's Front Page Sunday from WKMS News.
We’ll also look back at 2012 and ahead to the coming year in business with Christian County Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Carter Hendricks. Then, we’ll explore the relationship between a master craftsman in a dying art form, and the apprentice who’s working with him to bring it back. We’ll also meet the new directors at the LBL Planetarium and at Fort Donelson.
