Unlike a traditional concert version of George Frideric Handel’s famed 1741 Oratorio, this production will be sung by those attending! Conductor Lucia Arner leads the ensemble and the Delaware Valley Opera’s Kathy Geary (soprano), Carol Diefenbach (mezzo-soprano), Eric Barsness (bass) and Kevin Hanek (tenor) are the noted soloists. An instrumental ensemble composed of adults and young area musicians will be on stage and the audience will sing selections from the choral oratorio with scores provided at the performance.
The joy of singing this well-loved piece and the pleasure of hearing the accomplished musicians and soloists will make the afternoon a memorable highlight of the holiday season. Singers young and old are most welcome to lift their voices. Featured chorus selections from Handel’s Messiah Oratorio include: “And the Glory of the Lord”, “And He Shall Purify”, “For Unto Us a Child is Born”, and “Hallelujah Chorus”.
