MIAMI (Mar. 3, 2020) – Led by founder and artistic director Patrick Dupre Quigley, Seraphic Fire brings professional vocal and instrumental artists from around the country to celebrate the cultural diversity in music. This April 19th at 4 p.m., the ensemble will join the stage for a brilliant complete performance of George Frideric Handel’s choral masterpiece “Messiah.”
