FAU to Present George Handel’s ‘Messiah’
BOCA RATON (November 29, 2010) – The department of music in the School of the Arts in Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters will present George Handel’s “Messiah” on Sunday, December 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the University Theatre on FAU’s Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades Road. This concert will be performed by the FAU Chambers Singers, along with some of its alumni and professional orchestra members. It will be directed by Patricia P. Fleitas.
“Messiah,” the most well-known of Handel’s works, relates the story of the life of Jesus. Perhaps the most famous portion of the work is the “Hallelujah” chorus. This holiday classic is a wonderful way to bring in the holidays.
The concert is free with a $10 donation suggested. For more information about this or any other concerts at FAU, call 561-297-3820.
