Handel’s Messiah: Concert at First-Plymouth Church

What: Handel’s Messiah: Concert at First-Plymouth Church
When: Saturday, April 16th from 5:30p to 6:30p
Where: First-Plymouth Church, 2000 D St., Lincoln, Ne

The Holy Saturday concert, “Handel’s Messiah” will be April 16, 5:30 p.m., in First-Plymouth Church’s sanctuary and online at firstplymouth.org. Holy Saturday, Handel’s Messiah will also feature the Schola Cantorum as well as soloists Simpson, Garrett and Matthew Clegg. The singers will be accompanied by strings, trumpets and timpani in excerpts from the compelling Messiah—a beloved musical expression of the hope and joy that Easter brings.

First performed in 1742, Handel’s Messiah includes the iconic “Hallelujah Chorus,” perhaps the most recognized piece of choral music ever composed and one that continues to be performed frequently nearly 300 years later.

First-Plymouth’s Schola Cantorum choir recently sang in Chicago, as the only church choir selected to perform for the Midwestern Regional Convention of the American Choral Directors Association. Conductor Tom Trenney won Second Prize in the 2021 American Prize for Choral Conductors, and he will conduct two choral/orchestral performances in Carnegie Hall next season.

This Holy Saturday concert will be held in First-Plymouth’s sanctuary and online at www.firstplymouth.org. Freewill donations will help First-Plymouth’s JustNeighbors initiative pay off neighbor’s medical debt in Lincoln.

Childcare provided.
