“A Holiday Prelude” – Messiah Project keeps the important traditions of the Winter Holidays focused on the real meaning of the season. Act I features a local children’s choir and the Messiah Singers singing music that strikes a familiar note in all our hearts. Act II brings to the stage “Amahl and The Night Visitors”, a classic American musical that is now performed around the world. “Amahl and the Night Visitors” is a musical in one act by Gian Carlo Menotti with an original English libretto by the composer. The story finds that on one night in Judea, a disabled shepherd boy-turned-beggar and his mother are visited by three strangers. As the story unfolds, we learn that they are the Three Kings on their way to Bethlehem to visit the Christ Child who has just been born.
Just as “Nutcracker” is a favorite performance that is enjoyed by audiences year after year, this timeless story never fails to bring laughter, suspense, and a tear to your eye, no matter how many times you’ve seen it!
This year offers a new cast and chorus, along with the addition of a children’s choir. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to greet the season with this sweet and compelling musical performance.
We believe that the word of God is the foundation to our faith. Art is simply a way to communicate beyond the intellect to the soul of man. Many intellectual people have written off the Bible and the principles of Christianity, and art is the only way that they can be touched.
In Augst 2007, we opened the doors of Credo Dance Academy (CDA) as a subsidiary organization of the Messiah Project, Inc. CDA is one of the few specialized schools in the Springfield area that promote non-competitive and appropriate dance instruction for children and adults.
