MUSICAL ARTS SOCIETY
PERFORMS ‘MACCABAEUS’

Everybody knows Handel’s "Messiah."

On Sunday afternoon at UNLV, the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society will introduce local audiences to Handel’s oratorio "Judas Maccabaeus " as part of its 50th anniversary season.

Four guests soloists will join the Musical Arts Chorus and Orchestra, conducted by Douglas Peterson: soprano Amy Cofield Williamson, mezzo-soprano Juline Gilmore, tenor Scott Williamson and bass-baritone Neil Wilson.

"Judas Maccabaeus" ranks second behind "The Messiah" as Handel’s most frequently performed oratorio; it focuses on the title hero, also known as Judah Maccabee, who led a fight for religious freedom against the Greco-Syrian empire.

The oratorio will be performed at 3 p.m. Sunday in Artemus Ham Hall at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, 4505 S. Maryland Parkway. Tickets ($18 for adults, $12 for seniors, disabled, and military and $8 for students with ID) are available by calling 895-2787 or going online to pac.unlv.edu.
