Since 1966 First Congregational Church has presented Part I of Handel’s Messiah, the Christmas portion, concluding with the Hallelujah chorus. The First Church Festival Chorus, 75 singers strong, is accompanied by the First Church Chamber Orchestra.

The 52nd annual performance will take place on Saturday, December 8, at 4:00 p.m. Tickets for the performance will be $25 and will be available online later.

If you would like to order tickets but are out of the area, please call the Church Office during normal business hours, request tickets be reserved for you, then send a check to the church, made payable to FCCOG. Your tickets will be available at the door on the day of the performance.

We are proud to feature these outstanding soloists for our 52nd year:
