JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – For the first time, the Johns Creek Symphony will be presenting Handel’s “Messiah,” the Christmas portion, plus “Worthy is the Lamb” and the “Great Amen.”

Johns Creek United Methodist sanctuary will be the venue for this inaugural concert featuring the JCSO under the direction of Maestro J. Wayne Baughman with Peter Marshall, harpsichordist, who is also the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s principal keyboardist.

Guest soloists include soprano Katie Baughman, mezzo-soprano Amanda Tittle, tenor Richard Clement and bass Stephen Ozcomert, as well as the JCSO Messiah choir.

These auditioned choral singers perform throughout the metro area, and many also perform with the JCSO for the annual Christmas Gala and Holiday Pops Concert.

The JCSO is looking forward to performing this iconic masterpiece for the community, and plans it to be an annual musical tradition.
