The Voices of Omaha presents its 43rd annual performance of Handel’s oratorio Messiah in the Holland Performing Arts Center’s Kiewit Concert Hall, on Sunday, November 20, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. This concert is presented as a gift to the community and is free and open to the public.
Conducted by artistic director Edward B. Hurd, more than 135 singers will be joined by acclaimed soloists Anne DeVries, soprano; Janet Carlsen Campbell, mezzo-soprano; Paul Koenig, tenor; and Terry Hodges, bass-baritone. An orchestra drawn from among Omaha’s finest musicians will accompany the performance.
“The amazing acoustic of the Kiewit Concert Hall was designed for music such as this,” said Hurd. “No microphones or amplification–just singers and instrumentalists performing in a magnificent space just as did Handel.”
