The Fine Arts Association of Southeastern Kentucky, Inc. presents The Messiah, performed by The Lexington Singers, Saturday, December 9, 2017, 7:30 p.m. at First Baptist Church, in London.
In 1959, a small group of men and women decided that Lexington needed a community chorus. Most had previous choral experience, such as church choirs, but none were professional musicians; they worked in sales, engineering, purchasing, or homemaking. But if their experience was modest, their goals were not. From the start they aimed for “the best possible performance of the most challenging music from the choral repertoire.” Under the direction of Dr. Jefferson Johnson, The Lexington Singers will perform Handel’s season classic, a “commentary on Jesus Christ’s Nativity, Passion, Resurrection and Ascension.”
Individual tickets for the show can be purchased for $30 at the door. Students can purchase tickets for $10.
