Up Next: Handel's Messiah

Sunday, December 4, 2:00 PM
Featuring the Dakota Valley Symphony and Chorus with SATB Soloists

Handel comes to life in December at the Ames Center as we perform the Hallelujah Chorus, solos, and a major portion of this most beloved holiday classic. This is a great way to celebrate the Christmas Season with the greatest story ever told.
