El Mesías: A Collaboration with Border CrosSing

For a special holiday collaboration in 2020, the Minnesota Orchestra partnered with the Border CrosSing choral ensemble to perform For Unto Us a Child is Born/Porque nos ha nacido un niño, from Handel's Messiah/El Mesías. 

This project was led by artistic director Ahmed Anzaldúa, who is seen in the video leading the Orchestra as he plays the harpsichord.

English text:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given. And the government shall be upon his shoulders and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

Spanish text:
Porque nos ha nacido un niño, se nos ha un Hijo dado, Y el gobierno reposará sobre sus hombros; y se llamará su nombre Admirable Consejero, Dios Poderoso, Él es el Padre Eterno, Príncipe de la Paz.
