There is no other choral work that carries the significance of Messiah by George Frederick Handel, performed by more singers every year than any other. Most often, we hear only the Christmas portion plus Hallelujah Chorus. But this season we will offer the special treat of nearly the entire work. There are some wonderful choruses in the second and third sections! Several choruses and solos from the second part number among Artistic Director John Corrie’s favorites. The Androscoggin Chorale will perform this enduring work with soloists Susan Strickland, Shannon Rolbiecki, Martin Lescault, and Leon Griesbach, along with the Maine Music Society Orchestra.

Handel’s Messiah is kindly sponsored by Austin Associates, Center Street Dental, Gleason Media, Liberty Mutual, Andrucki and Mitchell, Central Distributors, Platz Associates, and Sun Journal.
