Griffin Choral Arts to present Handel’s Messiah

STAFF REPORT :::

Griffin Choral Arts (GCA) will present Handel’s “Messiah,” Parts 2 and 3 on 7:30 p.m. March 15.

Sixty area artists will perform this work.

Handel’s oratorio “Messiah” stands as a pillar of the choral-orchestral repertoire. GCA will present the second and third parts, which illuminate the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ, and point to the second coming and the vision of the Lamb of God seated on the eternal throne.

Expressive recitatives, dramatic airs, remarkable choruses, including the brilliant “Hallelujah,” radiate the splendor of the one who reigns forever and ever.

The concert is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. March 15, at First Baptist Church. Tickets are $15 and are available at the door.

The community is invited to prepare for the Easter season with this classic work of art presented under the leadership of GCA Artistic Director Steve Mulder.
