Sing-it-yourself Messiah 2013

Need an extra hallelujah in your life? Join us for a community sing of the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church, 66 St Stephens Drive, Orinda, on Friday, December 6 at 7:30 p.m. The Messiah Sing will be directed by Minister of Music Robert Train Adams, with Festival Choir, soloists and chamber orchestra with harpsichord and organ.

Soloists include sopranos Margaret Secour (St. Clare’s Pleasanton) and Marianne Adams, altos Chris Naliwski and Barbara Greeno, tenor David Chavez and bass Geoffrey Turnbull. This event is an annual fundraiser for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano Counties.

Childcare is available by reservation. A free-will offering will be taken. For more information contact Brenda Free, or 925-254-3770 x10.

This event is always fun: great music, a strong orchestra, lots of enthusiastic singing led by strong soloists; if that’s not enough, the reception after is itself not to be missed!

    I’m assuming we should bring our own librettos (libretti?), or will that be handled some other way? Projection screen? Handout?

    Which parts are the “Christmas portion”?

    • ststmusic Says:

      Charles, we’ll sing all of Part I (through “His yoke is easy”) and follow up with #33 (“Lift up your heads”), the soprano solo #38 (“How beautiful are the feet”), and concluding with #44 (“Hallelujah”). While we will have libretto available, I encourage you to bring your own

      See you soon!
