Imagine having a first row seat to hear an excerpt of Handel’s Messiah performed by the nationally acclaimed Detroit Chamber Winds and Strings ensemble accompanied by the Kirk in the Hills Choir.
What an incredible sound!
I’ve been attending Noel Night for years, such a fun event for anyone in metro Detroit to enjoy holiday song, arts and crafts, storytelling, musical performances, and great food.
This was the first time I’ve attended any Noel Night performances at the Detroit Institute of Arts.
In the past, I’m usually found at capella performances and choir concerts at the Cathedral of St. Paul or First Congregational Church further south on Woodward.
But this year, Noel Night was split into two different time periods: venues north of Warren had events happening from 1pm to 7pm.
Which is when I was at the DIA, for Handel’s Messiah performance at 5:45pm.
Venues south of Warren had events planned from 5pm to 10pm.
Which is where I was after the DIA performance, enjoying dinner and Original Dickens Carolers singing at First Congregational Church.
Another great Noel Night in Detroit!
