The 77th production of Handel’s Messiah will be held on Sunday, December 12, 2021 at 3:00pm.

This performance will be notably different as we start moving into a new style of performance. For the past three to five years, the choir program has discussed the problem areas of continuously putting on this performance. With those areas showing little change despite our best pushes, we have designed a new program to interact with our alumni and our community. As always, choir alumni will form an important part of this chorus, and our tradition.


Reserved seating tickets will be on sale at the WHS ticket office, dates to be announced.

Tickets will be on sale at the door the day of the performance, general admission only.
