St. Mary Basilica Parish has a tradition of supporting the arts. Each year, Marietta College performs two special concerts at the Basilica.

See the bulletin or our news and events page for information about the dates and times for these annual performances.

Handel’s Messiah

Join a professional orchestra, soloists, and the Marietta College Oratorio Chorus (Dr. H.G. Young, director), and the Marietta College Women’s Choir (Pamela McClain, director) as they all combine under the baton of Dr Daniel Monek for this Marietta College tradition!

The annual Marietta College performance of Handel’s Messiah dates back to 1926. The annual performance is a much-anticipated event in the community and a beautiful tradition to celebrate the season.

Christmas with the Concert Choir & Orchestra

The Marietta College Concert Choir (Dr. Daniel Monek, director) invites you to join them and a professional orchestra for this evening of carols and seasonal music.
