An annual tradition makes it’s triumphant return to the Hilliard area as the Hilliard Community Chorus presents Handel’s Messiah for it’s 45th year! As a musical setting of the Christmas story, we find ourselves centering on the new life and unconditional love this season brings. After nearly two years of silence, the opportunity to unite musicians from all over the city once again feels even more like a gift. Please join us in celebrating the Christmas season, and the return of live music making!
In addition to the Chorus, the concert will feature the talents of a chamber orchestra and 4 outstanding soloists: Martha Duersten-Pettit (soprano), Faith Fullen (mezzo-soprano), Tim Byrer (tenor) and Mikey Morris (bass). Additionally, the Hilliard Youth Chorus will be on hand with pre-concert holiday music beginning at 3:00pm. Admission to the concert is complimentary with a free will offering available with proceeds going to the Hilliard Arts Council enabling them to support their mission to Inspire and educate our entire community through the arts.
The Hilliard Community Chorus is a volunteer choir made up of over 30 community members united in their joy of singing. The Chorus currently performs twice a year and is conducted by Logan W. Fletcher, a trained choral conductor and Hilliard music teacher.
While St John Lutheran has no formal requirement, for the safety of all, audience members are urged to either be vaccinated or tested for COVID prior to attending as well as to wear a mask during the performance. Masks will be available at the door for those that need one.
