Handel’s Messiah

Our 2010 Messiah Concert

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, nearly one hundred singers strong, is accompanied by a twenty-piece chamber orchestra and professional soloists for the performances.

The 2014 performance will take place on Saturday, December 13 at 4:00 pm.

This year our performance is a ticketed event. Preferred Seating (first 8 rows in the Meetinghouse on both sides) is $40 and General Seating is $20 (row 9 and behind). Tickets can be purchased in the Church Office Monday-Friday between 9:00 and and 4:00 pm. Tickets will be sold following worship during Coffee Hour on Sunday, November 30 and December 7.  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.
