Ford Center Hosts Two-Part Musical Program on Dec. 1

George Frideric Handel is considered one of the greatest composers of the Baroque era.

A two-part program at the Gertrude C. Ford Center for the Performing Arts will celebrate Christmas in operatic style at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Dec. 1.
The first half of the program features a performance of the Gian Carlo Menotti opera, “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” a collaboration between the University of Mississippi and the Oxford community. The opera “tells the story of how faith, charity, unselfish love and good deeds can perform miracles,” according to the Ford Center website.
In the program’s second half, the UM Choirs, the Lafayette-Oxford-University Symphony and guest soloists will perform George Frideric Handel’s “Messiah” in English.
The project is funded by Nancye Starnes and the Kite Foundation.
Tickets are $30 for orchestra seating, $26 for mezzanine and $18 balcony. Tier 1 box seats cost $30, and tier 2 box seats are $26.
