General admission tickets to Bethany College’s annual Messiah Festival of the Arts concerts are on sale now. This year, in addition to the Bethany Oratorio Society’s traditional performances of Handel’s “Messiah” on Palm Sunday and Bach’s “St. Matthew Passion” on Good Friday, soloists from the American Spiritual Ensemble will take the stage on Easter Sunday to perform “A Spiritual Messiah.” These soloists will bring culture, diversity, and the art form of the African-American spiritual to Presser Hall. It will be a musically reflective and uplifting experience that none should miss!
