Rock presents the second and third parts of Handel’s
Messiah on Thursday, April 5, at 7 p.m. Conducted by
Dr. Bevan Keating, the 120-voice combined choir will
sing selections from Handel’s masterwork portraying the
journey from Christ’s passion and death to the glory of
His resurrection. The program features ten local
student and professional soloists, as well as professional
orchestral accompaniment.

There is no charge to attend this concert. Audience
members are encouraged to arrive early for best general
admission seating.
