Handel's Messiah - December 7Posted: 10/31/2017
“Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.”
So begins the famous oratorio, Messiah, written by George Frederic Handel. From the very beginning to the final triumphant chorus, the Gospel is woven into a musical tapestry consisting of orchestra, soloists and chorus. It is a message of hope and good news—our Savior has come and is worthy to be praised. While many churches present only the Christmas portion of this renowned work, First Presbyterian Church will offer the whole Christ story in an inspired presentation of Messiah on December 7 at 7 pm. Multiple levels of musicians come together in this performance: local orchestra members, LSU students and the Chancel Choir work together in an ultimate collaboration. Messiah has enraptured audiences and made kings leap to their feet for over 200 years.
