The Allen Symphony Chorus will be partnering with area African American congregations in reinterpretation of Handel’s Messiah using multiple genres of African American Music. “Soulful Christmas” will feature a major choral work call “Gospel Mass”. It is an appropriate work for the season that is written by Robert Ray, an African American composer, conductor, pianist and teacher. Allen Symphony Chorus is singing with the choir from Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church for a combined chorus of over 100 voices and will be accompanied by an instrumental combo. The program will include selections such as the Whitney Houston version of “Joy to the World” from The Preacher’s Wife”, “Now, Behold the Lamb”, “Worship the One”, “Mary Did You Know” and the ever popular and familiar Christmas Carol sing-a-long.
