Handel’s Messiah Presented by Griffin Choral Arts on March 15

Griffin Choral Arts (GCA) will present Handel’s Messiah, Parts 2 and 3 on March 15, 2018. Scheduled at 7:30 pm at First Baptist Church, 60 area artists will preform this work. GCA March 15 concert tickets are $15 and available at the door.

Handel's oratorio "Messiah' stands as a pillar of the choral-orchestral repertoire. We present the second and third parts which illuminate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ and also 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.

Prepare for the Easter season with this work of art. Dr. Steve Mulder serves as artistic director of Griffin Choral Arts. Click here for more information and to get tickets.
