A Shoreline performance of the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah is scheduled for Sunday, December 23 at 7:30pm in the First Congregational Church of Branford (on the Green).  Ettie Luckey, founder and artistic director of Branford Messiah, began this wonderful holiday tradition 25 years ago and wants to continue to bring this beloved piece of oratorio music to the citizens of the Shoreline for years to come.  Seasonal performances of Handel’s Messiah, for many, are as popular as performances of The Nutcracker and the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Show.  The Branford Messiah production is offered to the community for free.  Ettie’s vision when she started this project was to present this classical piece at no admission cost so that all could enjoy this beautiful story set to music.

This year’s performance is once again being directed by Wesleyan University professor Roy Wiseman.  Soloists are Charlotte Doss, soprano; Rebecca Ringle, mezzo-soprano; Ed Hull, tenor; and Jorell Williams, bass.  More than 50 community singers make up the chorus and 20 professional musicians form the pit orchestra.
