Messiah 2017

And It’s a Wrap!

The Kellogg Community College Choirs ended their Fall 2017 concert season on a high note. This past weekend the KCC Choral Union joined forces with the Battle Creek Symphony and the Battle Creek Community Chorus to present Handel’s epic oratorio Messiah in the historic W. K. Kellogg Auditorium. Within a period of 10 days and 3 concerts, our choirs were heard by nearly 3,000 audience members. See attached photo from this past weekend’s performance.

Our final performance of Handel’s Messiah

Needless to say how wonderful the presentation went. The audience at the historic W. K. Kellogg Auditorium, downtown Battle Creek was enthusiastic, and very appreciative. The KCC Choral Union, Battle Creek Community Chorus and members from the Albion College Choirs sang with beauty and expression. While the four soloists all gave a stellar performance which demonstrated sensitivity to text, virtuosic vocal abilities and power. The Battle Creek Symphony was spectacular in its own right. The evening was truly a memorable which the city of Battle Creek should be proud. Below see a few photos during the rehearsal process and following the performance.

Merry Christmas to All!
