WINDSOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Friday, December 8, 2017
St. Andrew’s United Church, Chatham
This beloved oratorio, Handel’s timeless classic, will be presentedby Windsor Symphony Orchestra conducted by Maestro Peter Wiebe and the 75 voice WSO Chorus directed by Chorus Master Dr. Bruce Kotowich. This concert of Handel’s magnum opus features soloists Chelsea Van Pelt, Soprano, Meagan Larios, Alto, Karim Sulayman, Tenor, and Clarence Frazer, Bass.
Messiah, written as an oratorio for Easter and Lent, is now closely associated with Christmas. The work has become the most performed and recorded choral piece in North America. “Ev’ry valley shall be exalted,” “For unto us a child is born,” and the famous “Hallelujah” chorus promise to be highlights.
Tickets available in person from St. Andrew’s church office Nov. 20 - 23 (9 to noon)
and the weeks of Nov. 27 and Dec. 4 (Mon to Fri, 9 to 4).
They are also available from the Cultural Centre box office or online from www.cktickets.com.
Tickets $25 in advance and $30 at the door. Student tickets $10.
Doors open at 7:00PM.
Rohingya people—as many as 900,000 by some estimates—are fleeing to Bangladesh, one of the poorest nations in the world, with little capacity to respond to their needs and numbers. The United Church works with several churches and agencies throughout Asia. Mission & Service partner ACT Alliance, in part supported by contributions from The United Church of Canada, is responding. ACT Alliance is focused on food security, water and sanitation, health and nutrition, and shelter. These needs become more urgent with each new arrival and the approach of winter.
Please include the displaced Rohingya people in your prayers. We are also accepting donations. You may click on the image above or here to access further information. The Government of Canada has announced it will match eligible donations made between August 25 and November 28, 2017.
