Let's partake in the sights and sounds of the season by enjoying a live performance of Handel's Messiah at historic Tremont Temple Baptist Church in Boston! The concert is FREE and open to the public with wonderful, professional musicians performing. For those that are interested, there are many fine restaurants in the area for dinner after the concert. Also, I imagine that there are festive store window displays and holiday lights to view when walking around in Boston if you arrive early or stay late in the city.
According to Wikipedia: "On 28 December 1843, the Free Church Baptists bought the Tremont Theatre, built in 1827 in Greek Revival style. They renamed it the Tremont Temple and adapted it for use for religious worship. They did not charge for attending their church and had a racially integrated congregation.
Although the building was largely used for religious purposes, it also served occasionally as the venue for public events. An Egyptian mummy was displayed beginning on 28 September 1850, and Sam Houston gave a speech there against slavery on 22 February 1855. Boston had a strong community of abolitionists, both black and white." Also, "the Temple was the site of Charles Dickens first reading during his[masked] tour of the United States. Dickens read from "A Christmas Carol" and "The Pickwick Papers" during his two-hour reading on December 2, 1867."
