Messyah Concert to Benefit GMCH!

Please join us for the U.S. premiere of British Composer Paul Ayres' amazing re-working of Handel's Messiah, which has been called “fresh, invigorating, thought-provoking and entertaining,” performed by the Sanford Dole Ensemble. The Sanford Dole leads a professional chamber orchestra and chorus, giving the familiar Handelian melodies a fresh feel with new rhythmic settings and harmonic surprises.
