Handel's Messiah

This was the scene at the 2018 Handel's Messiah at MVNU. This year's event is scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.

MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon Nazarene University’s Choral Union is beginning preparation for the annual presentation of Handel's Messiah, scheduled for Sunday, Dec. 8, at 7 p.m.

MVNU invites community members to sing with the students in this traditional performance.

Unless you're a returning participant, interested singers should provide a reference to Dr. Robert Tocheff by email at Bob.Tocheff@mvnu.edu or by phone at 740-397-9000, ext. 3005, or contact him directly.

Rehearsals will be Wednesdays, from Sept. 25 to Dec. 4, and Thursday, Dec. 5. They will take place from 4:40 to 5:40 p.m., in the Nease Rehearsal Hall in the R.R. Hodges Chapel/Fine Arts Center on the MVNU campus. Regular rehearsal attendance will be expected to prepare a quality performance.

Singers will need to provide a score — preferably the G. Schirmer edition.
