The Messiah sing-along set
The public is invited to Mount Carmel Chapel on Sunday, November 25 at 3 p.m. to join in singing The Messiah by George Frederic Handel. Bring a score, or borrow or purchase scores at the event.
Join in the singing by sitting with the appropriate section (soprano, alto, tenor or bass) or just listen. Admission is $5 or two non-perishable food items to be donated to the Jefferson High School (JHS) food shelf.
Soloists are Karen Gladen, soprano; Sonja Hinderlie, alto; and Patrick Kalina, tenor. Kay Hoffland will provide piano accompaniment.
The JHS Rainbow Strings, with brass and woodwind players, will provide other accompaniments. All are under the baton of Brad Lambrecht, director of the JHS and the Central Lakes Symphony orchestras.
The Messiah was composed in 1741 with texts taken directly from the Bible.
