ASU Chorale & Community Chorale present Handel’s Messiah

7:30pm CDT November 21 CST

500 Rio Concho Dr, San Angelo, TX 76903

The ASU University and community chorales return for another performance of Handel’s masterpiece, Messiah.  Presented once every four years, this year’s performance is very special because it includes a reunion of choir alumni from as far back as the 1940s, when ASU was still located on North Oakes St.  In addition to the well-known Christmas portion of “Messiah,” the Chorale will perform beloved seasonal hymns, including “Come Thou Fount,” “Now Thank We All Our God,” and others.

A cherished holiday custom since its premiere in 1742, this masterpiece of the Baroque era features some of the most popular refrains in Western music- from the lyrical air, “Comfort ye, my people,” to the majestic “Hallelujah Chorus.”  ASU’s Chorale began performing the work with orchestra in 1994, repeating it once every four years for the benefit of the students and the community.  The university and community chorales return for their sixth performance of this beloved work on the Friday before Thanksgiving.  ASU Choir alumni are invited to join in this very special holiday celebration.  For more information, contact director of choral activities, Dr. Pamela Lee, at (325)-656-2518 (cell) or (325)-944-3440 (home).
