Each holiday season, various Portland groups perform Handel’s stirring Baroque masterpiece. As always, Portland Baroque Orchestra’s historically informed version, played on authentic instruments and in tunings the composer would recognize, is the truest. Paul Agnew sings tenor and conducts a quartet of Juilliard-trained vocal soloists, plus the orchestra and choir. The first three performances are the full meal deal, but there’s a performance of just the highlights on Dec. 11. – Oregon Arts Watch
