More than 125 performers will come together at 7:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 2 and Sunday, Dec. 7, respectively, at the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church in downtown Huntington for performances of George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah.”

Marshall University’s Choral Union, Chamber Choir and University Chorus will join with the Marshall University Symphony Orchestra for two performances following dozens of individual and group rehearsals that began in September.

The ensembles will combine voices with the orchestra¹s woodwind, brass, percussion and string instruments to tell Handel’s well-regarded and popular tale of Jesus Christ (think “Hallelujah Chorus”), from Isaiah¹s prophecy of salvation to the acclamation of the Messiah.

Choral Union Director Rob Wray said the late 18th-century work is a fixture of the Christmas season.

“Messiah is arguably the most well-known large work for a chorus and orchestra,” Wray said. “It¹s a great opportunity as a conductor to be able to perform these types of works.”

For more information about the performances, contact Wray by phone at 304-696-2399 or by e-mail at wrayr@marshall.edu.
