80th Annual Performance of Messiah
Published: November 14, 2013
A popular annual holiday tradition returns for the 80th year as the Eastern Nazarene College Choral Union presents two free performances of Handel’s Messiah.
Comprised of ENC students and members of the community, Choral Union will present the beloved oratorio on Saturday, December 7 at 7:00pm and Sunday, December 8 at 3:00pm at the Wollaston Church of the Nazarene, adjacent to the college. Dr. Kevin Smith, associate professor and chair of the music department, will conduct the Choral Union, which will be accompanied by an orchestra comprised of local performers.
For 80 years, the Eastern Nazarene College Choral Union has performed two major masterworks of choral literature each concert season. Each fall, the Choral Union presents free performances of Handel’s Messiah as a holiday gift to the city of Quincy. In the spring, the group performs a different piece each year, with previous concerts featuring works by Brahms, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Faure and more.
