"Messiah" rehearsals


“Messiah” rehearsals to begin

Rehearsals for Bluffton University’s 122nd performance of Handel’s “Messiah” will be held from 7-8:30 p.m. Mondays beginning Oct. 2, in the Gilliom Room of Mosiman Hall on campus.

Anyone interested in singing, from high school students to adults, is invited to join the chorus, which typically ranges from 70-90 members, including Bluffton students, faculty, staff and community members. There is no cost to participate.

Rehearsals, to be held each Monday except Oct. 16, will lead to the traditional Advent-season performance at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 10 in Founders Hall. Natalie Mallis, visiting assistant professor in choral music, will conduct the performance, also featuring regional soloists and an orchestra.
