This year's community performance of Handel's Messiah will take place Friday, December 20, at 7:30 p.m. in McCain Chapel. A reception with hot chocolate and cookies will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Carlyle Fraser Library in Pressly Hall. All are welcome to stop by the reception prior to the performance.
We hope you will be part of Messiah, either as an audience member or as part of the community chorale.
All alumni parents, faculty, and staff are invited to participate in the chorus—along with the current Upper School choral ensembles—for the Christmas portion of Handel's Messiah. Rehearsals for the choral portions are as follows:
- Monday, December 2, at 7:00 p.m. in the Pressly Chorale Room
- Monday, December 9, at 7:00 p.m. in the Pressly Chorale Room
- Thursday, December 19 at 7:00 p.m. in McCain Chapel (Dress Rehearsal)
All choral musicians—faculty, staff, and alumni—are of course encouraged to attend any and all choral rehearsals, but we also look forward to singers joining us whenever they are able, which may mean for the first time at the performance on Friday, December 20. Please email Chris Walters, Upper School choral music director, with any questions.
