It’s almost time for the 69th Annual Performance of Handel’s Messiah.

Join the Messiah Chorus of Lake County on Sunday, December 3, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. at St. John Vianney, 7575 Bellflower Road, Mentor OH.  Each December, more than 150 chorus members and four extraordinary soloists raise their voices and sing this beautiful, classical score, accompanied by piano, organ, trumpet, and strings…in a tradition heralding the start of the Christmas season.

No tickets to this event are sold, as we strive to allow all people who wish to experience this moving and prayerful music to attend.  A free-will offering is taken during the performance.  Otherwise, we rely on chorus members’ annual registration fees and patron donations to defray all the costs of putting on this yearly performance.  All patron donations are welcomed, and can be made in cash, by check or online at .

Starting this year, make the annual performance of Handel’s Messiah by the Messiah Chorus of Lake County your holiday tradition!

Concert attire for 2017:

For the ladies:  Blouses should be black, long-sleeved, and any buttons must also be black. No scoop necks, no lace, no cutouts, just plain black with either a stand up or man collar. Each lady will be provided with a red scarf that will be wrapped loosely around the neck and draped down the front. This will give the entire chorus a finished, uniform look. I was asked about wearing a full length black dress.  I see no problem with that as long as it is plain black, meets the same sleeve and collar requirements as the blouses and has NO SLITS in the front or sides of the dress. Black shoes should be worn.
Men will be required to wear a black jacket, black slacks, a white shirt and a red tie, black shoes and socks.
I was also asked where to get black blouses.  I will have photos and information at the next rehearsal.  After some research, I found suitable black blouses at Walmart, Kohl's, and Woman Within (for those of us who might need something roomier)
