Huntington, Ind.—The Huntington University Concert Choir invites the community to join its members as they combine with the Huntington University Orchestra and begin to rehearse for their 53rd annual performance of Handel’s “Messiah.”
The performance will be 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Huntington. The public is invited to join the choir in their practices. Rehearsals will be held at the Merillat Centre for the Arts from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 22 and 29 and Nov. 5, 19 and 26 with a dress rehearsal on Dec. 1 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
For those that are interested, the choir and band will use the Watkins Shaw (Novello) score. If volunteers have their own copy, they are welcome to bring it. Scores will be available for purchase at the first practice for $8.50.
Dress for the performance for the ladies will be a black dress and for the men will be a dark suit with a white shirt and dark tie. Anybody is welcome to join in the fun and bring a friend.
Further questions about the choir may be directed to Dr. George Killian at (260) 359-4247 or about the HU Orchestra to Prof. Scott Hippensteel at (260) 359-4263.
