Attendance Expectations

We expect all university and graduate students to attend one performance of Handel’s Messiah.  Part-time students as well need to attend.  Only those who have no campus responsibilities may miss without prior approval.

Approval will be granted for you to miss Messiah if both performances conflict with your regular work or outreach ministry schedule.  You may not add work hours or outreach activities that prevent you from attending one performance.

Look ahead and do not plan an event or plan to be away during Messiah.  Some conflicts are unavoidable, and we will work with you in such cases, but you need to secure permission well in advance for those occasions.
