The Collegiate Chorale Presents Not The Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy)

December 16, 2014 – 11:32 am | No Comment

Eric Idle and the Cast of Not The Messiah

On December 15th, The Collegiate Chorale hosted their 2014 Gala, featuring the New York City premiere of Eric Idle and John Du Prez’s Not The Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy) at Carnegie Hall.  The event began at 6:00pm with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in Carnegie Hall’s Rose Museum, followed by a seated dinner in the Rohatyn Room. The performance commenced at 8pm in the Stern Auditorium with a dessert reception with the artists and surprise guests immediately following the concert. 

The 2014 Gala recognized honoree Christie Calder Salomon and honored guest Eric Idle. The event was led by Co-Chairs Susan Baker and Michael Lynch, Antonia and George Grumbach, Sandra and David Joys, Emilia Saint-Amand Krimendahl.




From the creators for the hit Broadway musical Spamalot, Not The Messiah (He’s a Very Naughty Boy) is a comic oratorio based on Monty Python’s movie The Life of Brian. Described by Eric Idle as “Baroque-N-Roll,” Not The Messiah features a lively pastiche of musical styles ranging from pop, country, and Broadway to doo-wop, hip hop, and Greek chorus. Hit songs include “Hail to the Shoe,” “We Love Sheep,” and the audience favorite and sing-along “Always Look on the Bright Side of Life.”

Not the Messiah features Eric Idle, Victoria Clark, Marc Kudisch, Lauren Worsham, and William Ferguson with Conductor/Director Ted Sperling and Orchestra of St. Luke’s.

“I’m delighted to be working with Orchestra of St. Luke’s,” said Ted Sperling, artistic director of The Collegiate Chorale. “We have had the pleasure of working together at the Caramoor Festival recently, and I could tell immediately that they started as a chamber music group. The level of care and responsibility that each musician takes in bringing the performance to life is striking, and the way the musicians communicate within the group is more typical of a string quartet than an orchestra. OSL plays with a vitality and sense of style that is a joy for a conductor… the inspiration flows in both directions.”

As I was otherwise engaged, I saw the show on the following night and it was riotous good fun.  I would love to see this filmed for PBS or another network so that it can become a holiday tradition.

Their trees are so real that no one will ever know didn’t go to a tree farm and cut it down yourself!
