Hallelujah! Masterpiece Chorale to present Handel’s Messiah

 

Experience the uplifting music of George Frederic Handel’s Messiah in a performance by the Southern

Lakes Masterpiece Chorale. This marks the Chorale’s 30th year, and a return to the first piece the group

performed. Enjoy the voices of 60 choral singers and four professional soloists, accompanied by an

orchestra of experienced musicians, as you savor the timeless message contained in this oratorio.

 

Handel composed Messiah in an interlude of somewhere between three and four weeks in August and

September 1741, writing from morning to night. The text was prepared in July librettist, Charles Jennens,

drawing from the King James version of the Bible with passages primarily from Isaiah, but also from the

New Testament books of Matthew, Luke, John, Hebrews, First Corinthians and Revelations.

 

Other Handel oratorios had strong plots anchored by dramatic confrontations between leading characters.

But Messiah offered the loosest of narratives: the first part prophesied the birth of Jesus Christ;

the second exalted his sacrifice for humankind; and the final section heralded his Resurrection.

 

This performance of Messiah will be directed by Richard Severing, who founded the Chorale with his wife,

Marie, who will be the featured soprano soloist. Other soloists are Brian Leeper, baritone,

Sarah Leuwereke, contralto and Alex Gmeinder, tenor. The orchestra is made up of musicians

from around southeastern Wisconsin.

 

The performance will take place at 7:00 p.m., Friday, May 1, 2015,

in the James Wehner Auditorium of the Elkhorn Area High School,

482 East Geneva Street, Elkhorn.

Tickets are $12.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door.

For tickets, see a Chorale member,

Motor vehicle crashes are the No. 1 killer of kids.


Why? In many cases, children are either not properly buckled into their safety seats or parents don’t realize that a booster seat

is vital to ensuring children fit

safely in their vehicle’s seat belt.

Don’t take a chance.

Have your child’s safety seat inspected!
