Prior to the COVID-19 shutdown, members of the Midvale Utah Community Messiah were working hard to learn composer George Frideric Handel’s masterpiece. Exactly three years later, they will finally be able to perform it.

The performance will take place Sunday, March 26 at 7 p.m., at the Union Park Stake Center chapel located at 7699 Chad St. 

“This performance is open to all and there is no cost for admission, but in keeping with the tradition that the first performance of ‘Messiah’ was for charitable purposes, those who attend are encouraged to bring an item of food to donate to the food bank,” said Jan Litster, who has been involved with the ‘Messiah’ performance since it began in 1984.
