Nearly 200 voices will join together this week, as choral singers from Notre Dame Preparatory School, Bryn Mawr School, Calvert Hall College High School, Hereford High School, Loyola Blakefield and Roland Park Country School present a combined concert on Sunday, Dec. 16, at 3 p.m., in Goucher College's Kraushaar Auditorium.
The students will perform George Fredrick Handel's "Messiah," complete with orchestra and professional soloists. Conducting the performance will be Peter Lander from Hereford High School.
Three of the four soloists are teachers at the participating schools — Alyson Shirk of Bryn Mawr, soprano; Jennifer Miller of Loyola-Blakefield, alto; and George Wilkerson of Calvert Hall, tenor.
Lander will be the trumpet soloist for the "Trumpet Shall Sound," with Lisa Driver of Roland Park Country as conductor, and Drew VanDyke Colby as bass soloist. The entire enterprise is produced by Gerald M. Smith, choral director at Notre Dame Prep.
This event is open to the public and tickets are $7, payable at the door. Reservations may also be made online at firstname.lastname@example.org. Checks may be made payable to Notre Dame Preparatory School.
