Since 1951, the Bach Society of St. Louis
has presented a holiday concert for the city that is highlighted by a solemn and beautiful candlelight procession. This year's Christmas Candlelight Concert features Handel's sublime Messiah
and guest singers the St. Louis Children's Choirs. The evening is completed with a selection of favorite Christmas carols and an audience sing-along. After all the hurly-burly of the past month, you deserve a serene candlelit evening; take advantage of this once-a-year concert.
7:30 p.m. Tue., Dec. 23. Powell Hall (718 North Grand Boulevard; www.bachsociety.org). $25 to $75.
