Greenwood Calendar Music Scene Featured Band of the Week is the Greenwood Festival Chorale
This week the Greenwood Festival Chorale is performing with three other area choirs to perform Handel’s Messiah.
Handel’s Messiah – Largest Choir for Decades
The largest choir heard in Greenwood or Laurens Counties for many decades -possibly ever- will perform G.F. Handel’s Messiah on November 20 and 22, 2015. The production is a combined effort of 150 singers from the Greenwood Festival Chorale, the Laurens County Chorale, University Singers from Lander University, and the Chancel Choir of First Baptist Church Greenwood. Many local instrumentalists will be in the orchestra for the event. Performers range in age from 19 to 85 or older. The combined forces will perform selections from all three parts of Handel’s masterpiece. The Nov. 20 concert will be at 7:30 PM at First Baptist Church in Clinton, and the Nov. 22 concert will be at 3:00 PM in the auditorium at Lander University.
