“Music has the power to bring us together in unity as no other medium can,” Frazure says. “The music and message of Handel’s Messiah brings together into glorious harmony the human voice and orchestral instruments with Scripture and the timeless story of God’s redemptive plan through Jesus Christ. I am truly overwhelmed with joy and gratitude to be able to conduct this performance, and I look forward to preparing this music with all who will join us."
