Our audiences will enjoy the wide range of music we have in store for them, and we hope that they lose themselves in the wonder and glory of the season as they listen to the timeless music of the holidays. We are also very excited to co-host our first ‘Messiah Sing.’ This will be a relaxed, informal afternoon where we share the joy of making music together as we explore Handel’s greatest achievement. Great music with great friends. What could be better?” Music Director Susan Medley said.
