A cordial invitation from

The Community Chorus of Detroit

 Detroit’s renowned non-auditioned chorus

December, 2015 Concerts: Spiritual Messiah

Please mark your calendar for  Spiritual Messiah, on Friday, December 11 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, December 12 at 4:00 pm, at Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church, 8625 E. Jefferson Ave. at Burns in historic Indian Village, Detroit 48214. Secure parking.

The concerts  feature the CCD chorus and orchestra, with soloists from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, performing Handel’s great oratorio, Messiah – as written – punctuated with text-related African-American spirituals, for the purpose of illuminating each of these contemporaneous musical genres, as they are woven together from across the Atlantic, but even more so from across oceans of culturally, socio-economically, and geographically diverse life experiences, while conveying the same message. Through this innovative musical program, we celebrate the commonality of all people through their shared humanity and reverence. The CCD collaborates with renowned conductor and baritone Dr. Glen Thomas Rideout for this thought-provoking and deeply meaningful holiday program.

General admission tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.  All tickets ordered online will be held at the will-call desk at the concert. We are not able to mail tickets nor can we acknowledge ticket purchases by email. If you have questions, please contact us, per the email address below. Online ticket sales close at 5:00 pm on 12/10. Details about patron tickets/benefits and mail-in options are available under “Ways to Support.”
