George Frideric Handel wrote his “Foundling Hospital Anthem” to raise funds for a chapel at an orphanage in London. The work concludes with the Hallelujah Chorus (the same one you know from Messiah).
Chorus, orchestra and soloists will come together at Chevy Chase Presbyterian Church at 4 pm on Sunday afternoon, May 7, to present this and other works in a free concert.
Music Director Julie Vidrick Evans has put together a program that also includes the Shaker song “Simple Gifts,” gospel tunes such as “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” and “Ubi Caritas et Amor” (Where there is charity and love) by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo.
A reception will follow. The concert is free; donations are gratefully accepted.
