A new choir featuring Milwaukee-area students will present “Handel’s Messiah: A Soulful Celebration” on Saturday, June 19, at Wisconsin Lutheran College’s Schwan Concert Hall. Quincy Jones’ contemporary treatment of Handel’s “Messiah” uses African rhythms, harmonies and melodies to produce an exciting and inspiring concert experience that embodies African culture and style.
The 32-voice chorus, directed by Mr. Kenneth Daniel of HOPE Christian Schools, empowers young people to achieve musical excellence through commitment, discipline and teamwork. Singers are challenged to use song to fulfill Jesus’ command to go into the world and tell the word of God.
Admission is free and open to the public. Please join us and enjoy this soul-stirring performance, while supporting some very special students.
