Handel's Messiah to Benefit the Geauga Hunger Task Force

March 4, 2016

The Good Tiding Benefit Choir invites you to listen for a cause. This all volunteer ecumenical choir formed 27 years ago to help the local food banks through the work of the Geauga Hunger Task Force (GHTF). The Choir will continue their legacy of raising spirits and funds by performing the Easter sections of GF Handel’s “Messiah.” The two performances of this timeless Oratorio will be March 12th at 7pm and March 13th at 3 pm at Notre Dame Chapel, 13000 Auburn Road in Munson. There is no charge or reservations for the performances but a goodwill offering will be taken. 

“We mimic the composer G. F. Handel who used this same music to raise funds for the needy in his lifetime. He built orphanages, hospitals, and helped the poor with concerts in the cities of Europe,” said Sue Juhasz, Project Coordinator. “Although it is sad that we are seeing such large increases in need, it is wonderful that this area continues to produce such a talented and committed group ready to help their community.”

The choir is under the direction of Robert Boles and accompanied by Joy Leirer. The fine soloists this season will be Robert Boles, Laura Christian, Sara Hamrick, Colleen Juhasz, Sylvia Jurcak, Brenda Moosbrugger, Charles Moosbrugger, and Aubrey Woods. The attendees will also be invited to join in the Hallelujah chorus. 

We hope you can come and enjoy the blessings of community and the gifts of music.
