A community tradition since 1995, the annual Messiah Sing is a collaboration between the Michigan Festival of Sacred Music and First Congregational United Church of Christ. The Sing features a chamber orchestra made up of professional musicians and soloists from the Kalamazoo area. Portions of George Frideric Handel’s Messiah will be sung by those who wish to participate. For those who wish to listen only, you are welcome and encouraged to join us! ------- Running October 18 - December 1, 2019, the Connecting Chords Music Festival events center around the common convictions and threads that draw our community together – the importance of cultural traditions, human dignity, and the increased understanding of various faith traditions.
