'Messiah' rehearsals


'Messiah' rehearsals to begin

Rehearsals for Bluffton University’s 118th performance of Handel’s “Messiah” will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. Tuesdays, beginning Oct. 1, in the Gilliom Room of Mosiman Hall. Anyone interested in singing, from high school students to adults, is welcome to join the rehearsals, which will lead to the traditional Advent-season performance at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8, in Founders Hall.

Dr. Mark J. Suderman, professor of music, is the conductor, while Dr. Lucia Unrau, professor and chair of the Bluffton music department, is the rehearsal accompanist. Music scores will be available for singers to borrow.
