Messiah Sing-In Next » 1 of 10 « Prev
Stuart Johnson, Deseret News
You’ve had your fill of turkey and stuffing and the obligatory leftover sandwich. Now what do you do with the rest of your Thanksgiving weekend? How about starting off the Christmas season with Thierry Fischer and the Utah Symphony and Symphony Chorus Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 at 7 p.m. as they present the annual Messiah Sing-In.

If you don’t feel like your Handel is quite up to snuff, don’t worry! Members of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir will be in the audience on Nov. 30 and singers from the University of Utah will be in the audience on Dec. 1 to help keep you on the right track.

Soloists will be Utah Opera’s resident artists and the concert will feature orchestra members along with the Utah Symphony Chorus. This is probably the only kind of Handel you'll want to include in your Christmas plans.

To buy tickets, go to www.artix.org or call 801-355-ARTS.

I appreciate hearing the many meaningful choices we have to enhance the Christmas season. Nicely written and informative. Thanks for correcting the impression we got that the Tabernacle Choir would be performing at the Messiah. Much better news to hear that some members are just "sitting in" with the rest of us who want to sing. Now the challenge will be to choose! So much fun, so little time...


No Festival of Trees this year?

If you are the Bryn McDougal that used to sing in Salt Lake Choral Artists,
I just wanted to say "Hi" and that you are missed!
