On Saturday evening, December 3rd at 7:30, FPCY will offer its 16th annual Advent Concert featuring Handel’s Messiah (the Christmas Portion), with guest professional soloists, Adult Choir, and chamber orchestra under the direction of Simona Frenkel. Handel’s Messiah is a beloved musical Christmas tradition and arguably the most popular piece of music in the world.

The Christmas portion of the Messiah follows the story of Jesus’ birth from early prophesy, to Bethlehem and the stable, and ends with the glorious Hallelujah chorus. The second half of the concert will feature beautiful choral and instrumental music from the Ukraine reflecting the rich cultural history of this embattled nation. Start off your holiday traditions with this glorious musical celebration of bringing hope into the world. A reception will follow the concert in Fellowship Hall. A donation is requested to support the Concert Series. For information call (914) 245-2185.
