first_img Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Top of the News Holy Week is always considered one of the most important times in the Christian calendar — Christians’ equivalent to Jewish High Holy Days — but this year will be even more significant because of two major concerts at Pasadena Presbyterian Church.On Saturday, March 19, at a special start time of 7:00 p.m., Dr. Timothy Howard will lead the Pasadena Singers, soloists Judith Siirila Paskowitz, Alice Kirwan Miller, Jonathan Mack and Michal Dawson Connor, and the Friends of Music Orchestra in a rare complete performance of Handel’s oratorio, “Messiah.”Then on March 25, at 7:30 p.m., for the 19th edition of its annual Good Friday Devotional Concert, Dr. Howard will lead the Kirk Choir, community singers, soloists and orchestra in a performance of “The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace” by Welsh composer Sir Karl Jenkins.The church Sanctuary is located at 585 East Colorado Blvd. (corner of Madison Ave.) in the Playhouse District of downtown Pasadena. As is the case with all Friends of Music concerts, these performances will be free of admission charges (a freewill offering will be taken at each). Free parking is available and the church is handicap-accessible.Both works will be presented with text projections in English, Spanish and Korean.Composed in a frenetic span of 23 days, “Messiah” is the best-known choral work in history. Many people often associate it with the Christmas season but two-thirds of the work deals with the passion, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
