Have you always wanted to sing the Messiah, but never had the opportunity? Your opportunity has arrived! The Voices in the Oaks and the Oracle Piano Society are pleased to present their first Messiah Sing Along on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 3 p.m. at the Oracle Center for the Arts (OrCA), 700 E. Kingston St., Oracle.
Singers may bring their own Messiah score, or use one of a limited number of chorus copies available at the door. Copies of the chorus parts will be made available for a nominal cost. Don’t care to sing? Audience members are invited to participate by either singing OR listening!
George Frederic Handel’s masterpiece, Messiah, was written in 1741, and has long been a choral standard often performed by professional choruses and church groups alike during the Holiday season. Messiah is Handel’s most sung and most popular choral work.
The Voices in the Oaks will be joined by members of the Catalinas Community Chorus to lead the audience in the performance of Part I, as well as the often performed and loved “Hallelujah” chorus from Part II. Solos from Part I will be sung by selected chorus members. The concert will be conducted by Chorus Director, Mary Huebner, and supported by piano accompanist, Sheryll McManus, who is also the music director for Oracle Union Church.
The Voices in the Oaks Chorale is presenting this Messiah Sing Along for donation only! For reserved seating, visit www.oraclepianosociety.org to make your donation and obtain a ticket. You may also enter at the door, as long as seats are available.
In the spirit of holiday giving, the Chorale is also requesting donations of canned goods for those in need this holiday season.
