The holiday season in Ann Arbor is never officially underway until Handel’s Messiah is performed at Hill Auditorium. The Grammy Award-winning UMS Choral Union (2006 “Best Choral Performance” for William Bolcom’s Songs of Innocence and of Experience) launches the holiday season with its signature work. An Ann Arbor tradition, these performances are ultimately the heart and soul of UMS, connecting audiences not only with the talented people on stage, but also with the friends and family who attend each year. Join us for this very special Messiah as we celebrate the centenary of Hill Auditorium. In a true community tradition, the performance will feature the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, the 175 voices of the all-volunteer UMS Choral Union, and conductor Jerry Blackstone.
