The Claflin University Concert Choir performs during their 2010 performance of Handel’s Messiah. The Concert Choir is directed by Dr. Isaiah R. McGee.

Claflin University and the Downtown Orangeburg Revitalization Association will present Handel's Messiah on Tuesday, Nov. 29 at Stevenson Auditorium.

The concert begins at 7:00 p.m. and is free and open to the public.

“We are absolutely thrilled to present the Messiah to the Orangeburg community again,” said Dr. Isaiah McGee, director of the University Concert Choir. “It is a great way to usher in the holiday season and we enjoy presenting new interpretations and highlighting the students' vocal talents each year.”

This year the Concert Choir will again be accompanied by an orchestra.

“The Messiah performance has become a Christmas tradition here at Claflin,” said President Henry N. Tisdale. “It is truly wonderful to be able to partner with DORA and present it to community members who have meant so much to the success of the choir and this university over the years.”

Stevenson Auditorium is located at 979 Middleton Street in Orangeburg. For more information on the concert, please contact Mrs. Tracie Tisdale by phone at (803) 535-5193 or by e-mail at
