University Musical Society
Hill Auditorium
8:30 p.m., Friday, December 2
By Gazandra Eiland
H ALLELUJAH! A musical
tradition continues as the Univer-
sity Musical Society presents Handel's
Messiah at Hill Auditorium. .Ann Arbor
will once again expose its musical
talent as the Choral Union, University
Symphony band members, and
soloists unite to perform this devotional
oratorio in true style. Whether it's
Baroque or Bartok that turns you on,
few can resist this lyrical masterpiece,
which is one of Handel's most famous
The Messiah is a choral composition
on a religious subject for soloists as
well as chorus and orchestra,
traditionally performed without
costumes and scenery. The text con-
tains three biblical excerpts pertaining
to the coming of the Savior, His death
and resurrection, and prophecies of the
last judgement and future life. Handel
composed the Messiah (1741) in a mere
23 days for its debut in Dublin, but this
English-style oratorio has a celebrated
history in Ann Arbor as well.
Donald Byrant will conduct the
Choral Union, which is presenting its
54th seasonal performance of the
Messiah. This ensemble performed in
The University Musical Society's ac-
claimed May Festival with the
Philadelphia Orchestra and Chicago
Symphony. Faculty, student and com-
munity vocalists will be assisted by

soprano Kathryn Bouleyn, tenor Joseph
Evans, counter-tenor John Ferrante,
bass Jay Willoughby, harpsichordist
Nancy Hodge and organist Marilyn van
der Velde. The operatic repetoire of the
veteran performers featured is vast
enough for one to complete a musical
dissertation superimposing classical
and contemporary opera.
Many of the performers can boast of
impressive histories. Kathryn Bouleyn
has performed with several major
opera companies, including the New
York City Opera, and will appear with
the Canadian Opera company in La
Boheme soon. Jay Willoughby, who is
the winner of the "Joy in Singing"
award with a New York recital debut,
has focused on the role of Rigoletto in
four English translations and in Italian.
John Ferrante performed with the New

Orleans Philharmonic, New York Pro
Musica, Boston Symphony, Baltimore
Symphony, Hollywood Bowl Symphony
and as guest singer with PDQ Bach.
Joseph Evans, who has been soloist
with the Brooklyn Philharmonic and
