Choral Union performs with the Quincy Bay Chamber Orchestra at Wollaston Church of the Nazarene
A popular annual holiday tradition returns, as the Eastern Nazarene College Choral Union presents two free performances of Handel’s Messiah.
Comprised of ENC students and members of the community, the 60-voice Choral Union will present the beloved oratorio Saturday Dec. 1 at 7:00 pm and Sunday Dec. 2 at 3:00 pm at the Wollaston Church of the Nazarene. The choral group, consisting of students and community members, will be conducted by John Schnelle, accompanied by the Quincy Bay Chamber Orchestra. The performance will feature solos by professional singers baritone Ryan Mullaney and tenor Arthur Rishi, alto and ENC alum, Hannah Ford (10), and student sopranos Paige Fehr (14) and Elizabeth Blanchette (15).
For more than 75 years, the Eastern Nazarene College Choral Union has performed two major masterworks of choral literature each concert season. Each fall, the Choral Union presents free performances of Handel’s Messiah as a holiday gift to the city of Quincy. In the spring, the group performs a different piece each year, with previous concerts featuring works by Brahms, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Faure and more.
