ELORA – The Elora Singers announced the second concert of their 2019-20 winter season – Singers Messiah.
Handel’s moving masterpiece is performed in a unique way, with Elora Singers as soloists, officials say.
The show will take place on Dec. 8 at 7:30pm.
The concert will be performed at St. Joseph’s Church in Fergus.
“As a professional singer, I have performed the Messiah umpteen times as both a soloist and a chorister and enjoy it every time,” said choir member and manager, Christina Stelmacovich.
“Still, my fondest and indeed most moving performances have been with The Elora Singers. In the true Baroque tradition, artistic director Mark Vuorinen has all choruses and solo arias shared among members of the Singers.
Initially written for the Easter season, Handel’s Messiah has become a staple of the Christmas season.
Even during a season full of spectacle, endless Christmas muzak, and a bombardment of advertising, Handel’s Messiah stands among the giants of the season.
Singers Messiah, featuring Handel’s moving masterpiece, The Messiah will take place on Dec. 8 at 7:30pm at St. Joseph’s Church (760 St. David St. N.,) in Fergus.
