Sing-Along Performance of Handel's Messiah Comes to Raue Center, 12/10
Raue Center For The Arts is excited to welcome Voices in Harmony with a beautiful holiday tradition. The choir and the community will join their voices together for a sing-along performance of Handel's "Messiah" at 4 p.m. on December 10, 2017.
"This is truly one of the most beautiful community-based performances and is among the most meaningful holiday traditions," says Voices in Harmony Artistic Director Steve Szalaj. "Join your voice with the choir or just listen and be uplifted!"
Handel's great masterwork is presented with a 25-piece orchestra, excellent soloists and projections of beautiful calligraphy by Timothy Botts and the McHenry County College Chorus will supplement the on-stage choir. Featured soloists will be announced at a later date.
"Sing-Along Messiah" started as a joint venture between the Crystal Lake Community Choir (now known as Voices in Harmony, founded by Artistic Director Steve Szalaj) and McHenry County College. The first performance was given December 13, 1997 in the MCC Conference Center. "Sing-Along Messiah" has since become a staple of Raue Center's holiday programming and is among the most beautiful and meaningful holiday traditions in McHenry County.
Tickets start at $18 and can be purchased online at rauecenter.org or via the Box Office at 815.356.9212 or at 26 N. Williams Street in downtown Crystal Lake.
