The Zeeland Civic Chorus is a nonprofit 501C3 organization whose mission since 1939 has been to share the gospel through music by performing the renowned masterpiece G.F. Handel’s Messiah. Our Chorus is made up of non-professional singers from the west Michigan community who love to sing and present two renditions of the Messiah as a Christmas tradition.

Although the Chorus members pay annual dues, we still rely on generous donations from people and businesses to present Handel’s Messiah each year. These funds are necessary to compensate professional soloists, director, and musicians that perform with us, and to reserve the performance facilities.

Please prayerfully consider our need for patrons to meet our $5,000 fundraising goal. We are pleased to acknowledge all our patrons in our performance program and on this website. For your convenience, you are now able to donate online. Simply click the “Donate” button below and follow the instructions. If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
