At our next Music Sunday service (date is TBD, postponed from March 15), our choir with perform Part 2 of Handel’s Messiah with an ensemble of strings, trumpets, and organ. Part 2 depicts prophecies of Christ’s suffering, death, and triumph over evil, culminating musically with the the Hallelujah chorus. Its message has underlying resonance with our current season of Lent. We performed Part 1 of Messiah this past December, and we will complete our cycle with Part 3 later this spring. Soloists for this performance include Andrea Dietrich, Ivy Waltz, Mark Lawrence, and Steven Stull. Please stay tuned for the date. We will update it here as soon as it’s set.
