Voices of Omaha has been performing Handel’s Messiah at no charge for 44 years as a gift to the Omaha community.

Ed Hurd, Artistic Director of Voices of Omaha, says Governor Heineman recently proclaimed this Sunday, November 24th, as “Voices of Omaha Appreciation Day in Nebraska.”

He says the singers continue to return each year because they enjoy singing together and singing this music.

"The music is so engaging and the texts that Handel set to music are so meaningful that this really has a message for the entire human race.  It’s been one of the most popular choral works in all of choral literature since Handel wrote it 271 years ago.”

Voices of Omaha presents Handel’s Messiah tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. in the Holland Performing Arts Center.  There is no charge to attend.

To ensure the program is accessible to all members of the community, all announcements are in English and Spanish, the performance will be audio described for the blind and ASL interpreted for the hard of hearing.
