I got an email from a Logan Circle church that I had mentioned back in September that suffered some damage from the earthquake. They are raising money with Handel's Messiah.
Handel's Messiah at Ascension and Saint Agnes
December 18, 2011, at 4:00 pm
Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes
1217 Massachusetts Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20005
The Choir and Baroque Ensemble of the Church of the Ascension and Saint Agnes, conducted by J. Owen Burdick, present Handel's Messiah in its most vivid and authentic form. A professional chamber choir and orchestra of period instruments convey not only the monumental sweep but the intricacy and subtlety of Handel's masterpiece--as well as its considerable spiritual power--all within a glorious acoustic that reveals every nuance. All proceeds from the concert will benefit the organ restoration fund. For tickets, call 1-800-838-3006 or visit http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/211641.
