Handel’s Messiah coming to Shepherd’s Grove

This upcoming Friday, April 14, all are invited to attend a wonderful evening of music and celebration, as the Hour of Power Choir and Orchestra performs the latter movements of Handel’s Messiah, led by world-renowned Handel scholar, conductor Don Neuen.

Considered by many to be one of the preeminent scholars on the works of Handel, Neuen’s directorship in this performance will be a celebration of decades leading the Hour of Power’s choral excellence. His well-deserved retirement following this concert means that this will be an exceptional and uncommon opportunity to see and hear Handel in the hands of an expert.

Messiah features many wonderful solos, and the wide talent of our celebrated choir will be on full display. Rarer still, to have such skill freely available to enjoy is worth bringing your friends and family!

The concert will begin at 7:30 pm in the sanctuary, with doors opening shortly before. This concert is non-ticketed and will be open to everyone (attendees will be given the opportunity to make a love offering if they so wish). We are expecting a very full house, and seating will be first come, first serve. Please call 714-971-4000 with any questions you may have.

    I’ve been listening to the “Messiah” annually by Sir Neville Marriner since1992 which was the 250th Anniversary Performance in Dublin and currently have the Philips DVDof that performance, so it will b e wonderful to hear this one by Don Neuen.

    Is it possible to stream the Good Friday service live so those who cannot attend can watch it?

      We unfortunately will be unable to stream that service. We will be streaming the 11:15 service on Easter morning though!

      God loves you and so do we!
