Portland Baroque Orchestra

Guest conductor Eric Milnes led the Portland Baroque Orchestra and the voices of Cappella Romana in a wonderfully intense Messiah.

The two male soloists were especially moving. Tenor Zachary Wilder began with a passage from Isaiah. His voice was so clear and focussed you could feel the audience holding still, hardly daring to breath until his section was done.

Bass Matt Boehler's sense of drama added to his powerful voice. You felt his connection to the music and the orchestra.
