During the last Messiah performances in 2016, more than 170,000 people in over 190 countries around the world joined via the digital stream in their homes with family and friends, or with larger groups in churches, schools and community centers.  Many others joined as their own Messiah events took place using the on-demand internet stream available from the Choir’s website for a limited period following the live performance.”
