Dec. 16 Program:
nnual Messiah Production
lated Dec. 76, In Coliseum
On December 16th in the Colise
um, over 600 University students
t will take part in the forty-second
annual presentation " of Handles'
Messiah. Soloists of this year's
hour-and-a-half production will be
Shirley Halligan, Soprano; Phylis
Malory, Alto; Richard Voth, Tenor
and Robert Vitols, Bass.
The Presentation of the Messiah
by the University of Nebraska has
become a tradition that could no
more be dispensed with than could
the football team. It has become
an event that has religious signifi
cance for literally hundreds of
church groups in the Lincoln area.
Each year the crowds attending
keep swelling and this year it is
estimated that approximately 8,000
Moreover, the influence of the
Messiah is spread outstate by Uni
versity graduates. Omaha, Seward,
Albion, Central City, and Scotts
bluff are all presenting "The Mes
siah" this year which will have
been directly influenced by t h e
University's original production.
Professor David Foltz, Chair
man of the Department of Music
who will direct the Messiah this
year, defines the production as an
oratorio. This means that it is a
narative set to music. The original
Messiah was written in the in
credibly short time of 24 days by
its composer George Frederick
Handel, at the order of the king
The King was advised by his
clergymen not to allow the Dresen
tation.of the oratoria. which has
since become one of the most wide
ly presented compositions in his
tory. Therefore, the first time it
was heard was in Dublin, Ireland,
Tradition says, however, that
tne king, George II, ordered a
private performance in spite of the
objerctions of his clergy. The king
was so moved by the production
that during the singing of the
Hallelujah Chorus, which con
cludes the performance, he rose
to his feet, thus establishing a
tradition which survives to this
In spite of this, it was 1750 be
fore officials allowed the Messiah
to be performed in London. After
that however, the presentation of
the piece at Christmas and Easter
became one of England's most re
Today the Messiah is presented
al! over the world at two major
holy festivals of the year, Christ
mas and Easter. It tells the story
of the birth, death and resurrec
tion getting the most emphasis de
pending on the season of the year.
Many cities in America are fa
mous for their presentations of the
work. Chicago presents one of the
best and New York has over fifty
presented in the course of a year;
but surprisingly the presentation
which is annually ranked the high
est is the one in little Lindberg,
Kansas. Some of the biggest
names in the field of concert mu
sic have performed here.
Foltz, who has seen most of the
major productions in the United
States, contends that the Univer
sity's presentation is comparable
to any of the best. Foltz has said
that "Seeing the Messiah present
ed anywhere is one of the most
moving religious and musical ex
periences that our lives can have.
