FREDERICK, Md.—Hood College’s 68th annual performance of “Messiah” is scheduled for Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 22 at 3 p.m. in Coffman Chapel.
This year the Hood Choir will be joined by the Choral Arts Society of Frederick, soprano Jan Aaland and tenor Peter Scott Drackley to present “Messiah and More.” The musicians will be under the direction of Lynn Staininger, director of choral activities at Hood College.
While continuing Hood’s “Messiah” tradition, the concert will be in a new format, featuring an expanded selection of music, including movements of “Messiah,” such as the “Hallelujah Chorus,” and introducing a new piece by composer Dan Forrest in honor of the Thanksgiving holiday. The program will conclude with an audience sing-along of traditional carols.
This event is open to the public. Admission for Hood students, faculty and staff is free. General admission tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for non-Hood students and senior citizens ages 62 and older.
