Huntingdon and First UMC present Handel’s Messiah
Montgomery, Ala.—The Huntingdon College Concert Choir, under the direction of Ms. Gene Davis, and the First United Methodist Church Choir, under the direction of Mr. Jack Horner, will perform the Easter and Lenten portions of Handel’s Messiah, Sunday, March 1, at 5:00 p.m. in the First United Methodist Church Sanctuary (note the change in time and change in location from previously released information). The vocalists will be accompanied by selected orchestra. Horner and Davis will co-conduct the concert, which is free and open to the public. The performance follows a similar collaboration several years ago for the anniversary of Mozart’s birth. The First UMC choir performed the Christmas portion of the Messiah during the holiday season.
