The “Messiah” date is NOT Dec.9 but Dec. 10th (correcting a piece you ran earlier). I’m in the chorus and planning on the tenth so check your date book. Pilgrim Church is such a perfect settting for this wonderful piece.
Do come…professional accompanist, some excellent soloists, and very gifted director…
