“Messiah” is a seasonal favorite

You know the holiday season is just around the corner when Hood College Choir performs Handel’s Messiah. This year, choir alumni will join current choir members Nov. 22 at 7:30 p.m. and Nov. 23 at 3 p.m. for the 67th annual performances of the famous oratorio. It’s a must-see event!

As in previous years, the concert will feature four soloists: Lisa Dodson, soprano; Katelyn Jackman, mezzo soprano; Leroy smith, tenor; and Nathan Wyatt, bass. Lynn Staininger, director of choral activities at Hood, will conduct the concert. And a number of Hood faculty will perform with the orchestra, including Wayne L. Wold, associate professor of music and College organist; William D. Powell III, instructor of piano; Anna Claire Ayoub, instructor of bassoon; Ed Stanley, oboe instructor; Alison Bazala, cello instructor; and bassist Lynn Fleming, instructor of string bass.
