In collaboration with Elizabeth Forward High School students, the University Choir and Orchestra will give two performances of oratorios from Handel’s Messiah, on Nov. 21 and 22.

Thursday’s 7 p.m. performance will take place at in the auditorium at Elizabeth Forward High School, 1000 Wigles Hill Road, Elizabeth. Ticket price is $5.

Admission is free for Friday’s 8 p.m. performance in the Morgan Hall auditorium, although scholarship donations are welcome.

Both performances are open to the public.

Plans for the collaboration began last spring. Cal U’s Dr. Yugo Ikach and Angela Milliren, choir director at Elizabeth Forward, discussed the project at a Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Junior Festival.

“We are doing the Christmas portion from Messiah and adding the holiday chorus, so we have about one hour of music,” said Ikach, director of University Choirs and Music Department chair. “It’s such a wonderful, real staple of the choral repertoire, and I would be remiss if I left this place someday having never done it.

“We have had to work on this pretty much all semester, because it is difficult. But I think the students will make some really good memories with it.”

Singalong ‘Messiah’

Ikach also will be leading a sing-along Messiah Dec. 1 at the Parish of Immaculate Conception in Washington Pa. Although this takes place during the Thanksgiving break, Ikach hopes to fill the audience with members of the Cal U and Elizabeth Forward communities.

“I strongly encourage anyone to bring their score and come sing in the audience,” Ikach said.
