First Congregational Church
Sunday, November 30, 2008
The annual Messiah Sing is now a collaboration between First Congregational Church of Kalamazoo and the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music.
The Messiah Sing will be held at the First Congregational Church (FCC) located on the corner of Michigan Ave and S. Park Street in downtown Kalamazoo. We invite all who want to sing the great choruses in Part 1, the Christmas portion, of Händel’s immortal oratorio, MESSIAH. Those who wish to simply listen to this great work are welcome to attend, as well. As in the past, we present as vocal soloists the Aspire Quartet from FCC – Corlyn Longer Schreck, Sara Rivara, Howard Tejchma and Joseph Schreck – and a full orchestra of instrumentalists drawn from the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Dr. Graeme Cowen, Choral Director at FCC.
Each year, we add a few different elements to the Sing-along to provide interest and variety.
Admission to this Messiah Sing is free. There will be a freewill offering plus a reception to follow. Parking is available in FCC parking lot, or free on-street, but come early since we anticipate a full audience. Bring a score or borrow one at the door. For further information, call the FCC office at 269.343.1549. This event is co-sponsored by the First Congregational Church of Kalamazoo and the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music.
