The Old Stone Presbyterian Church Music Department, under the direction of Dr. Brennan Wood, will present selections from George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah” on Saturday, Dec.10, at 7 p.m. in the church sanctuary.
“Messiah” is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by Handel. The concert will feature a 15-piece orchestra and a chorus of 34 singers from the Old Stone choir and others from the community. The program will include the popular Part I of “Messiah,” which is often called the “Christmas” portion. This concert will conclude with the “Hallelujah” chorus from Part II.
The community is invited to join them for this celebration of Christ’s birth, that is such an integral part of the Christmas season.
