Dear Metropolitan Family and Friends,

I want to personally invite you to join us on Sunday, December 3, 2023, at 5 pm as we continue our tradition of storytelling through music, dance, and spoken word in our presentation of The Messiah Comes.


The United Voices of Metropolitan will share the rich stories and traditions of our global church community accompanied by a string quintet, our great organ, and our own MET Live Band. This year we will welcome back sopranos Angeli Ferrette and Victoria Purcell Coan. Our featured artists will be The Ellington Carthan Trio, headliner at Blues Alley and led by  Strathmore Artist-in-Residence alumnus, Ellington Carthan.

The Messiah Comes tells the Christ’s coming and will feature works from Handel’s Messiah and Quincy Jones’ Handel's Messiah: A Soulful Celebration. This concert will guide us on a journey of spirituals, anthems, gospel, and soul music. We will share the story of great anticipation and faith through the canon of music specific to the Black church tradition. 

For 47 years Metropolitan has celebrated this season with the music of Handel’s Messiah. Our advent season performances have been made possible by generous financial contributions from supporters like you. I hope that you will join me in making a financial gift to help us create a meaningful worship experience through our musical traditions.


This year we will offer a digital program and souvenir booklet. This keepsake will be sent via email to all contributors. To feature your business or to offer a congratulatory ad, please send your ad to and submit your funds using the options mentioned in the next paragraph. Pricing information can be found below.
