Sheboygan symphony presents sing-along Messiah

December 14, Saturday, 7:30 p.m.

The Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra and Chorus will present a unique holiday performance of Handel’s Messiah. The audience will be encouraged to “lift their voices” with the Chorus. The Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra is under the direction of Kevin McMahon, Director & Conductor, and the Sheboygan Symphony Chorus is under the direction of Wilhelmina Nelmes Vogtle.

The Sheboygan Symphony Chorus is an ensemble which represents the musically diverse population of the area. Professionals and amateurs, the young and seasoned musicians work side by side to present one of the most beloved classical works.

The Messiah was composed in 1741, when Charles Jennens convinced Handel to create an oratorio based upon a compilation of Scriptures he had recently selected. Handel wrote the entire work in a twenty-four-day spurt from August 22 until September 14. Consistent with the format of oratorios, Messiah is divided into three parts, which represent Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection; each section containing a series of arias and choruses.

The Sheboygan Symphony and Chorus invite one and all to join us for this inspiring holiday event.
