Masterworks Chorale to Perform Messiah at Grace Baptist

The Central VA Masterworks Chorale is excited to return to Grace Baptist Church on Friday, December 15, at 7:30pm. The Chorale members are celebrating the second half of their ten-year anniversary season with a reprise of the first-ever concert performed by the newly-formed group in 2007.

Messiah, by G.F. Handel, is a classic holiday favorite, and Artistic Director, Ryan Tibbetts, again takes the podium to conduct the Chorale and the orchestra. To complement Messiah, Director Tibbetts has chosen a work by Ola Gjeilo, a young Norwegian composer, entitled Song of the Universal, which will surely inspire. Renowned organist and accompanist, Daniel Stipe, will perform Handel’s Organ Concerto Op. 4, No. 5 to round out the program.

Please plan to attend and enjoy the classical as well as the contemporary with your entire family! Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door, and $5 for students. Tickets will be available soon at Cross Bros. Grocery in Ashland, online at the Chorale’s website, www.cvamc.org, by phone at 1-800- 838-3006, or from any Chorale member.

For questions or more information, please contact Becky Severin, Chorale President, at rvseverin@gmail.com or call 804-798- 3999.
