In 1741, George Frederic Handel gave the world a work of artistry that remains one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.
The return of an extraordinary event to be sure! Community voices join WCU Singers in the familiar and joyous performance of Handel’s Messiah. This is a must attend concert!
