Description

On Saturday, December 8, the first day of Hanukkah, at 7:30 p.m. at The Episcopal Church of Saints Andrew and Matthew, DVC presents Handel’s oratorio, Judas Maccabaeus. It is the story of one of the great warriors in Jewish history and the restoration of Jewish worship at the temple in Jerusalem during the Second Century BC, as well as the story of the Jewish feast of Hanukkah. For this concert, DVC’s Artistic Director David Christopher will turn over the conductor’s baton to Kimberly Doucette and will accompany on the organ. Doucette is Artistic Director of the Wilmington Children’s Chorus and is known for her appearances locally as soprano soloist. Numerous outstanding artists join DVC for the performance of Judas Maccabaeus, including David Lockhart (tenor) in the title role, Augustine Mercante (countertenor), Jeffrey Manns (tenor), Melanie Sarakatsannis (soprano), and Alex Helsabeck (bass). The Wilmington Children’s Chorus will join DVC for several choruses in the piece.
