Coming November 22, 2020 - Handel’s Messiah
On November 22, 2020, the Crystal Coast Choral Society will embark on one of the most exciting and challenging programs in our long history! We will present Messiah of G.F. Handel in its glorious entirety. Although we’ve done large portions of Messiah in past years to much acclaim, this will be our first presentation of the entire masterwork. As far as we know, it will also be the only presentation of the entire Messiah in Eastern North Carolina in recent years.
We will be joined by an orchestra of the finest professional musicians. Our vocal soloists are all world-class professionals. We are especially excited to have Dr. Jonathan Griffith join us a guest conductor. Dr. Griffith is the principal conductor and co-founder of Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY). He is an award winning conductor and acknowledged authority on Handel’s Messiah. The concert will be presented at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, November 22nd, 2020 in the Earl Taylor Performing Arts Center of White Oak High School in Jacksonville.
We would like to have a large chorus for this very special concert. In addition to our regular weekly Tuesday evening rehearsals we’re making arrangements for occasional Saturday rehearsals. This will allow experienced singers with other choral ensembles who cannot commit to weekly rehearsals to join us for this historic occasion. The Tuesday rehearsals will begin 7:00-9:00 p.m., September 8th, 2020.
If you are interested in joining us for Handel’s Messiah we would love to have you. For further information please contact the Music Director, Finley Woolston, either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 910-358-2997.
