41 Years of Outstanding Performances 1973-2013
by George Frideric Handel
Dr. John V. Sinclair – Conductor
Welcome to the Messiah Choral Society web site. Now in our 40th season, we have given a free performance of Handel’s Messiah at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre annually as a gift to the greater metropolitan Orlando community. Considered the most magnificent classical masterwork of all time, Handel’s Messiah features the “Hallelujah Chorus” and a host of other glorious orchestrations, both choral and solo, many of which contain very familiar melodies.
This year’s concert is on Sunday, December 1, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre in downtown Orlando. The doors open at 2:15 p.m, there are no tickets and there is no admission charge.
Messiah Choral Society, Inc., is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) civic organization based in Orlando, Florida. The Society is not affiliated with any religious organization.

We have two cultural collaborations this year.
The Messiah Choral Society is among the many Central Florida arts organizations, which, through creative collaboration with each other are able to increase awareness of all the cultural offerings in our community. Such efforts not only allow more exposure for the individual organizations, but also provide audiences with a more enriching cultural experience.
The Society is pleased to offer lobby space in the Bob Carr Performing Arts Center on December 1, 2013, for a display of historical objects and photos from the Museum of Geneva History. We would like to thank Mary Jo Martin, Museum Director, for organizing this exhibit showing the history of rural Geneva, which is located in eastern Seminole County. The Geneva Historical & Genealogical Society, Inc., organized in 1952, owns and operates the Museum of Geneva History which contains over 1400 historical objects, photos, and writings which tell the story of the history of the area from prehistoric times to the present. From giant sloth bones found locally, to vignettes of a pioneer home, to the sound of the 1910 violano (player-piano and player-violin combination), to the story of Geneva’s tie to the Lincoln Conspiracy, this Museum surprises everyone who enters.
The Museum is located at 165 1st Street in Geneva and is open on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month or by appointment – (407) 349-5697 GenevaHGS@aol.com.
We also enjoy the honor of being able to help celebrate the Quincentenary celebration of the discovery of Florida. The Hispanic Arts & Culture International Association/ AIPEH, Inc., with the help of the President, Palmira Ubinas, has organized a table displaying promotional material of AIPEH and the 500th Florida Discovery Council. Please take a few minutes during intermission or after the performance to enjoy the company of our Hispanic artists and the promoters of the Quincentenary of the Discovery of Florida.
The Hispanic Arts & Culture International Association and the 500th Florida Discovery Council was organized in Orlando, Florida. The website is: www.poetasyescritores.com. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
