    Handel's Messiah

    Hello Friends & Family, Happy Thanksgiving! It is JMNS' sincere wish that you are all safe and well. If not for the pandemic, we would have kicked off our 2020-2021 season with Handel's "Messiah". However, we can still come together virtually to enjoy glorious inspiring music and celebrate the coming of our Lord. It is in this spirit that we share with you JMNS' performance of Handel's "Messiah" during our inaugural concert in 2015. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Love and light to everyone! God bless. Dr. Joanna Medawar Nachef/JMNS

Mozart’s Requiem

April 3, 2016 at 7:00 PM
Norris Center for the Performing Arts

The Requiem Mass of Mozart was to be his final composition, left unfinished and surrounded by mysterious myths.  The hall will resonate with the elegance of the classical period as the choir, chamber ensemble and soloists perform the completed version of the Requiem.  The second half will feature the magic of this genius with operatic choruses and choral gems such as the memorable “Ave Verum,” “Alleluia,” and “Laudate Dominum.”
