Steuben choir

Tickets for the eighth annual performance of “Messiah” by the Steuben County Festival Choir will be on sale beginning at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 21.

The 70-voice choir, directed by J. Joseph Peters, will be joined by a full orchestra including organ and timpani.

The performance begins at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 16, in Trine University’s T. Furth Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are $10 each and may be purchased at trine.edu/furth

Composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel, “Messiah” is a time-honored Christmas tradition around the world, and still remains the most performed piece of music in the Classical repertoire.

“This performance is a great way to continue your holidays, and is a great close to the already impressive Furth Center Christmas concert series,” said Peters.
