      BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Like clockwork, George Frideric Handel's “Messiah” returned to the Alys Stephens Center Saturday for the Alabama Symphony's annual presentation.

      The orchestra has been in the habit of hiring different guest conductors for each presentation, so the return of last year's conductor, Gary Thor Wedow, was a rare occurrence. Little has changed in Wedow's astute vision of the oratorio. Tight segues, fleet ensemble numbers, nicely shaped arcs, choral power waiting in the wings, drama – both subdued and majestic, were the hallmarks of this reading. Collapse
