Messiah rehearsals


2019 Messiah

Students, faculty, staff, alumni and community members join to perform Handel's Messiah, a Bluffton holiday tradition.

“Messiah” rehearsals begin 

Rehearsals for Bluffton University’s 126th performance of Handel’s “Messiah” will be held 7-8:30 p.m. on Tuesdays each week starting Sept. 28 in the Gilliom Room of Mosiman Hall on campus. There are a total of 10 rehearsals, one Saturday dress rehearsal and one concert. Masks are required during rehearsals.  

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

Rehearsals will lead to the traditional Advent-season performance in Yoder Recital Hall at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12. Dr. Bo Young Kang, director of choral activities, will conduct the performance, which features regional soloists and an orchestra.
