Choral Arts Presents Highlights Of Handel's Messiah Nov. 25 And 27

Thursday, November 08, 2012

Choral Arts of Chattanooga will present two performances of highlights from Handel's Messiah Nov. 25 and 27. This oratorio is one of the most frequently performed works in all Western music.  

During the Advent season, a typical rendition is to offer Part One, augmented by the Hallelujah Chorus. Choral Arts will present selections from all three parts, sung by a chamber choir with organ accompaniment. Several of the selections are Handel’s less-familiar alternate variations.

Soloists include: Soprano - Barbara Burrow, Betsy Craig, Sharon Dunn, Amanda Hegeman, Cynthia Johnson; Alto - Andria Thomas, Lonna Williams; Tenor - Jonathan Harris, Hal Miller, Gary Scheufler and Baritone - David Tahere.

The concerts will be presented on Sunday, Nov. 25, at 4:30 p.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church and on Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 7:30 p.m. at Broad Street United Methodist Church, Cleveland.

Admission is $15 for adults and $5 for students with ID. There is no charge for children under age 12. 

Choral Arts is a funded cultural partner of Allied Arts of Chattanooga, and a frequent recipient of grant funds from the Tennessee Arts Commission.
