Nineteenth annual Mountain Messiah sings
December 17, 2015
The Nineteenth Annual Mountain Messiah will be held at 7 p.m. Dec 20 at the YMCA of the Rockies Snow Mountain Ranch Chapel. The pre-show event will start at 6:30 p.m. The Mountain Messiah is a community sing-a-long concert. The sing-a-long was the brainchild of local musician and advocate of the arts, the late Joan Shaw. Although many communities have Messiah Sings, this one has a unique claim, at 8,850 feet, it is the highest sung rendition of G. F. Handel's Messiah. Children are welcome to attend and hear this time honored music sung with great energy and joy.
This event is possible because our community has a pool of local talented vocalists, pianists, and instrumentalists. The concert will feature the beloved and well-known Hallelujah Chorus as well as various other choruses, solos and instrumental numbers. The pre-show is a traditional favorite. Local piano and violin students will be performing as attendees enter the chapel.
There are no rehearsals. All are invited to come and sing or just to listen. It is recommended to bring a Messiah score however there we be musical scores available. An Afterglow party follows the event with more musical merriment. Everyone is welcome to bring and share holiday cookies.
