MPPC Presents Handel's Messiah
Sunday, December 2nd at 3:30pm
Learn about our performance, join our choir, and participate in our Bible Study this fall!
Each year, we enter the holiday season by celebrating the musical triumph of Handel's Messiah - bringing this professional performance to Chicago's South Side.
Maestro Charles T. Hayes conducts this epic performance, joined by Joy Denise Moore as Soprano, Allison Selby Cook as Alto, Jeffery Burish as Tenor, and Arthur D. Griffin, Jr. as Bass.
An orchestra coordinated by David Howard, joined by Yvonne Lindsey as pianist, and D. Josiah Montgomery as organist, will accompany this musical masterpiece. Our choir is joined by the Classic Act Ensemble and the Chatham Choral Ensemble to lead the chorus in this epic rendition.
Join the Choir in 2018!
Get in the holiday spirit by participating in community around this special musical tradition! If you want to be part the mass choir please join us!
All levels of singing talent are welcome. We have three rehearsals in November, Saturday the 3rd, 10th and 17th, 10:00am, and a dress rehearsal Friday, November 30th, 6:45pm.

Messiah Bible Study
Study the Scriptures of Handel’s Messiah with Pastor Ben Heimach-Snipes at Smith Village.
During each class we will listen to powerful recordings of Handel's Messiah music and then discuss the meaning and context of the particular scripture that Handel chose for that particular piece. The music composed in 1741 using scripture from millennia ago still has important meaning for us today. Click here for more Christian Education opportunities.
All are welcome! Ask for directions to the Theater Room at the Smith Village front desk.
