Celebrating its 20th anniversary, Soulful Messiah is a soulful combination of tap, jazz, afro-caribbean, ballet, contemporary, hip hop and free-style. This Canadian-grown holiday tradition is rooted in music and movements from the African Diaspora, integrating traditional and contemporary vocabulary created by Caribbean-born, Artistic Director, Patrick Parson.

Soulful Messiah’s soundtrack is a modern reworking of the 30 years-old Grammy Award-Winning album Handel’s Messiah – A Soulful Celebration, produced by Quincy Jones. The holiday classic includes Hip Hop, Soul, R&B, Gospel and more.
