Tabor College to present ?Messiah? again Dec. 4

Tabor College?s long-standing Christmas tradition of performing ?Messiah??the 18th century work by George Fredrick Handel about the anticipation and impact of Jesus Christ?will continue Sunday, Dec. 4

The production, featuring the Tabor College Concert Choir, Alumni Chorus and Tabor?s Community Orchestra, will be at 7 p.m. in the Hillsboro Menno?nite Brethren Church, 300 Prairie Pointe. Admission is free and open to the public.

Bradley Vogel, professor of choral music, will be conducting for his 14th year at Tabor.

?For many, it serves as the beginning of the Christmas holiday season,? Vogel said of the tradition that dates back nearly a half century. ?It brings the college and Hillsboro communities together to celebrate an important spiritual event.?

Vogel said part of his enjoyment of performing ?Messiah? is the way it is collaborated by so many performers on various professional levels.

?It?s a focal point that brings current and past choir members together,? he said, ?and I very much enjoy maintaining that connection with alums.?
