Handel's Messiah

The Department of Music at Ashland University is proud to present the holiday masterpiece George Frideric Handel’s Messiah performed by the Ashland University Choir, Ashland Area Chorus and Ashland Chamber Orchestra with Dr. Rowland Blackley as conductor.

As the most famous oratorio ever written, Messiah is a collection of texts drawn from the sacred scriptures dealing with Christ’s birth, sufferings, death and resurrection. Best known for its "Hallelujah" chorus, the choral piece also features several well-loved recitatives and arias sung by soloists.

With over 150 musicians on the Hugo Young Theatre stage, Ashland University’s presentation will feature Timothy Guenther on harpsichord along with vocal solos from several Ashland University students.
