BOURBONNAIS, IL (11/27/2018)-- Emma Morris of Germantown Hills, Illinois (61548) is featured as contralto soloist in Olivet Nazarene University School of Music's 83rd annual production of Handel's "Messiah" on Saturday, December 1, 2018, 7 p.m., in the Betty and Kenneth Hawkins Centennial Chapel on Olivet's campus in Bourbonnais, Illinois. Morris is a sophomore, majoring in music education at Olivet.
This beloved oratorio expresses the life of Jesus Christ in music. Composed in 1741 by George Frideric Handel in just 24 days, it is still one of the most popular works in Western choral literature. "Hallelujah" is undoubtedly its most well-known chorus.
The oratorio will feature the University Orchestra conducted by Dr. Neal Woodruff. Music faculty Dr. Karen Ball and Dr. Jeff Bell will be playing the harpsichord and Ruffatti pipe organ, respectively. The chorus will be comprised of members of all University vocal ensembles.
