Come see the performance at 7:30 on Saturday, April 21 in the Kent Concert Hall.

There are a lot of good reasons to see the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra perform Handel’s Messiah this Saturday. Under the direction of Craig Jessop, their concerts have that chill-inducing quality that classical music lovers associate with a fantastic performance.

Add their talent  to Handel’s amazing music, and you can’t miss. Any work that has stayed popular since 1742 must be good.

The premier occurred in Dublin, Ireland. The American Festival Chorus and Orchestra will bring the same soaring melodies to Logan, Utah–and they are dedicating their performance to the CPD  as they help us celebrate our 40th Anniversary.

The concert will be enhanced by American Sign Language interpreters for the Deaf.  The theatrical interpretation group is composed of both hearing and Deaf USU alumni, current students, and faculty.

The Messiah begins at 7:30 on April 21 in the Kent Concert Hall in the Fine Arts Center at Utah State University. Tickets can be purchased on the American Festival Chorus and Orchestra website.

Come and help us celebrate 40 years of the CPD and 270 years of Handel’s Messiah.
