The Messiah Choral Society of Grand Junction was founded in August of 2004 to present an annual performance of Handel's classic oratorio, Messiah. The concert is offered each Easter Sunday at the Grand Junction High School Auditorium as a musical gift to the Grand Valley community by the members of the Messiah Choral Society and its donors. Admission to the concert is free of charge.
