Live/Concert, Christmas

Community Chorus of Detroit

When: Fri., Dec. 11 and Sat., Dec. 12 2015

The Community Chorus of Detroit (CCD) will be performing at the gorgeous Jefferson Ave Presbyterian Church in Indian Village. The concerts feature the CCD chorus and orchestra, with soloists from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre & Dance, performing Handel’s great oratorio, Messiah – as written –punctuated with text-related African-American spirituals, for the purpose of illuminating each of these contemporaneous musical genres, as they are woven together from across the Atlantic, but even more so from across oceans of culturally, socio-economically, and geographically diverse life experiences, while conveying the same message. Through this innovative musical program, we celebrate the commonality of all people through their shared humanity and reverence. The CCD collaborates with renowned conductor and baritone Dr. Glen Thomas Rideout for this thought-provoking and deeply meaningful holiday program.

Price: $16 - $25
