Info for the 60th annual Messiah Concert at the West Point Cadet Chapel

Members of the WVC have again been invited to participate in the 60th annual Messiah Concert at the West Point Cadet Chapel on Sunday, Dec. 2, 2018.  This is always a popular activity for WVC members.  Singers from choruses all around the area join to form a choir of over 100 and sing out this traditional Christmas favorite. The concert, which will cover Part I of the oratorio plus the Hallelujah Chorus and Worthy is the Lamb, begins at 3:30 pm and is free to the public.  The concert "will proceed in any kind of weather – rain, snow, ice or shine!"  

The chorus call (the time to be in place in the choir section of the chapel) is 2:15 pm in order to have a quick rehearsal prior to the performance.  [Note, your webmeister highly recommends that you plan on arriving at the Cadet Chapel before 1:30 pm in order to secure a good seat in the choir section (first come, first chair) and to have a hope of finding a parking spot.  You can relax and listen to the soloists and orchestra rehearse their parts.]  The note below specifies the concert attire.
