Handel’s Messiah

An eagerly anticipated holiday season tradition, these performances are ultimately the heart and soul of UMS, dating back to the organization’s founding and first concerts in the 1879-80 season.

The performances connect audiences not only with the talented artists on stage, but also with the friends and family who attend each year. In a true community tradition, the performances feature the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and the voices of the Grammy Award-winning UMS Choral Union, all under the direction of Choral Union music director Scott Hanoian. Soloists to be announced.

Messiah Cards


A special treat for all you fans out there! During UMS’s 125th season, we held a contest to design the Messiah poster. Bill Burgard, who had done many Ann Arbor Summer Festival posters over the years, entered, and he has been designing our Messiah posters ever since — 14 of them so far. This season, you can purchase a set of 10 lovely cards based on these designs.
