The Cameron University Department of Music, the Lawton Schubert Music Club, Fort Sill’s New Post Chapel, and the Cameron University/Lawton Civic Chorus are pleased to present the 72nd annual presentation of Handel’s “Messiah.” The annual Lawton tradition will take place on Saturday, December 14, at 8 p.m. at the McMahon Auditorium, located at 801 Northwest Ferris Avenue in Elmer Thomas Park. Admission is free.

The Lawton Schubert Music Club initiated the first performance of “Messiah” in December 1941. The event has become a performance tradition during the Christmas season in the Lawton/Fort Sill area. The performance will be approximately one hour in length and will feature soloists and a professional orchestra which accompanies the volunteer chorus. Soloists for this performance include sopranos Debbie Wood, Aly Hays, and Jordan Brickhouse; mezzo-sopranos Dale Nomura and Katie Dunigan; tenors Matthew David and Doug Snook; and baritones/basses Troy Hamilton and Jonathan Moots.

For the 27th consecutive year, the chorus and orchestra will be conducted by Doris Lambert, director of choral music at Fort Sill’s New Post Chapel and adjunct music instructor at Cameron. Kathryn Hickman, president of the Lawton Schubert Music Club served as accompanist for rehearsals, which started in October, and will play harpsichord for the performance.
