Elmhurst Choral Union and Orchestra perform the Christmas classic, Handel's Messiah on Sunday, December 14 at 3:00 p.m. in Hammerschmidt Chapel on the campus of Elmhurst College.

In the spirit of performances from Handel’s lifetime, the concert benefits local children.  A portion of ticket sales goes to ChildServ, a Chicagoland charity serving at-risk children and families.  The concert also includes “Foundling Hospital Anthem”, written by Handel for a London orphanage.

Guest soloists Kimberly Eileen Jones; Sarah Holman, Cornelius Johnson, and Scott Uddenberg, join the ECU and professional orchestra under the direction of James MacDonald.

Tickets are $25 for adults, $23 for seniors and $10 for youth (ages 7-22).   To order tickets, visit elmhurstchoralunion.org or call 800-838-3006.

Complimentary shuttle bus service from the college parking lot on Alexander Boulevard will be available.

Elmhurst Choral Union is an auditioned volunteer choir, performing choral masterworks of all eras.  The concert is funded in part by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council, a state agency.
