Each year, the Lamar University Choir program joins select orchestra members from the area to perform a majority of Handel’s masterpiece, The Messiah. With a grand total of fifty three movements, this work is no easy feat. We have always considered the concert as a gift to the community. As a result, audience members are not charged anything for admission to the concert. Several Lamar faculty members, financial supporters of Lamar University, and even Lamar students attend the concert each year. To take part in such a grand work of music as a college student is an incredible opportunity.
