Too Hot to Handel: The Jazz-Gospel Messiah marks its 11th appearance at the Auditorium Theatre honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Often called a high-octane version of Handel’s Messiah, this annual tradition always has audiences up on their feet singing and dancing in the aisles! Named a Don’t Miss Pick in Chicago Magazine’s Chicago Guide, join us for this annual Chicago tradition over MLK weekend.

Part of our “Made in Chicago” Music Series.
