The continuous performance legacy of Handel’s Messiah is the longest of any in the history of music. For 250 years, audiences have flooded concert halls to hear its ageless strains. Come hear this fresh, period-sensitive performance that will help you encounter anew the incarnate Christ.

Featuring “Instrument Art”: The School of Music is retiring tired instruments into the hands of students, who will make works of art from them. The art will be on display in the foyer of the Chapel starting at 6:30 p.m. You can bid on them through a silent auction. The proceeds go toward the purchase of new instruments with a slight percentage given to the first, second, and third place artists. This is a unique way for you to both give a gift and to acquire one for the Christmas season.
Seating in the Chatlos Chapel has sold out. Discounted tickets ($3.00 each) for overflow seating for a large screen, live stream of the concert in Holmes Recital Hall will be available in the chapel lobby on the night of the concert.
