The Marshall University Choral Union and the West Virginia Symphony Chorus will give two performances of Marc-Antoine Charpentier's "Midnight Mass for Christmas" Nov. 29, in Huntington and Nov. 30, in Charleston, with David Castleberry conducting.

"The Midnight Mass is a charming work, based on French Noels that are woven into the choral textures of this marvelous liturgical work," Castleberry said in a news release. "It is a delightful, evocative piece that will appeal to audiences."

In addition, the choruses will perform Charles Theodore Pachelbel's "Magnificat," and organist William Murphy will play selections from Claude Balbastre's "Premier Suite de Noels."

The Huntington performance will take place at 8 p.m. at Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church, 413 10th St., while the Charleston performance is at 8 p.m. at Christ Church United Methodist, located at Quarrier and Morris Streets.

Admission is free and open to the public.
