Messiah is one of the most popular works in Western choral literature, and one of George Frideric Handel’s most famous works. Composed in London during the summer of 1741, and premiered in Dublin in 1742, it was repeatedly revised by Handel, reaching its most familiar version in 1754. The libretto by Charles Jennens is drawn entirely from the King James and Great Bibles, and interprets the Christian doctrine of the Messiah. The University of Michigan’s University Musical Society’s Choral Union has been performing this classic for decades with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. We have main floor seating for the 2 p.m. Sunday matinee. Our package includes tickets to the performance, brunch beforehand at Weber’s Inn, and motorcoach transportation from SVSU.
