Communique: Part 1 & 2 Of Handel's Messiah At Wilson Center Sunday

George Frideric Handel

The Cape Fear region is full of song this holiday season. Another choral concert is coming up this weekend with the Wilmington Choral Society. The group will perform the 1st & 2nd parts of Handel's Messiah on Sunday, December 11 at the Wilson Center at 2:00pm. Choir director Paula Brinkman and Board President Kim Leggett joined us in the studio. Considering that the Messiah has been around for 275 years, I asked Paula what gives it such staying power. Listen above.

This Messiah concert features about 100 voices, a harpsichordist, and 14 orchestral musicians. Non-perishable food donations for Mother Hubbard's Cupboard are accepted at the concert. Tickets are available online, at the door, and by telephone at 910-362-7999.
