From the Thornhill performance of Handel’s Messiah:

There was a capacity crowd at the Christian Community Church last Saturday Dec. 17th for the presentation of Handel’s Messiah, conducted by Michael Schmidt and presented by Symphony in the Barn. It was a moving performance for those lucky enough to be in the audience. The Messiah was performed again the following Sunday, Dec. 18th, in Hanover.
