The Sherman Chamber Ensemble joins with Music in the Nave Friday, December 9th, at 7:30 PM for a performance of Part I of Handel’s most beloved work, Messiah. The performance, which will feature a guest soloist with the audience as the chorus, will be held at St. Andrew's Church, One North Main Street in Kent.
Messiah, the English-language oratorio composed by George Frideric Handel in 1741, is structured in three parts with a libretto by Charles Jennens. Part I, sometimes called the “Christmas portion,” is frequently performed during Advent in concert or sing-alongs and begins with the prophecy of the Messiah and his virgin birth.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased on the Sherman Chamber Ensemble website or at the door, subject to availability.
St. Andrew's Church Music in the Nave has been producing concerts for audiences in the Northwest Corner since 2010. Recent performances have included the St. Petersburg Men's Ensemble, the Rosewood Chamber Ensemble, The Wyckham Consort and the annual Messiah.
