Selections from Handel's Messiah

November 24, 2015 by Randy Keck

Event Date: 
Mon, 11/30/2015 - 7:00pm

In keeping with tradition, the Parker County Community Choir will perform selections from Handel’s Messiah at 7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 30, in the Alkek Fine Arts Center at Weatherford College. Doors open at 7 p.m., and admission is free.

Community members from across the WC service area have dedicated their time to rehearse and perform this concert for the past 15 years.

“To take time out of their busy schedules and add another responsibility of coming to an hour and a half rehearsal every Monday night since August, I think speaks to how much they get out of singing in a quality group,” said director Rob Laney.

And each year the community responds in kind with their attendance.

“This is a great way for the Weatherford College Police Department to give back to the community, and give the kids a safe place to trick-or-treat,” WCPD Chief Paul Stone said. “We also ask for a donation of a can of food from each visitor. This canned food will be delivered to the Parker County Senior Center.”
