Registration forms will be available in late August.
The practices will be held at Uxbridge Baptist Church, Brock St. in Uxbridge on Sunday afternoons from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. Practices begin the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Please come a little early on the first day to facilitate registration. As always, there will be a cost of $20.00 to each choir member to cover the expense of practice refreshments etc. Scores and practice tapes will be available to purchase for those who do not already have them. Our concerts will be December 17 & 18, 2018 at 8:00 p.m. with a dress rehearsal on the Sunday before, all at Trinity United Church, Uxbridge.
Once again we will need the assistance of Choir members to help make this year a success. We require involvement in promotion, stage set up, enlisting sponsors, practice refreshments, concert organization, and ticket distribution to name a few. Please consider how you can help and be prepared to sign up at our first few practices.
This unforgettable seasonal tradition will be presented by the Uxbridge Messiah Singers, a volunteer organization which exists solely to bring Handel’s much loved oratorio to area music lovers.
The production will be conducted once again by Thomas Baker, with a chorus of over 100 voices from around Durham & York regions, and a 15 piece professional orchestra.
Although there is no set admission charge for the Messiah, donations to defray expenses are received at the door each evening. Producers are suggesting a $25 donation per person. Only 750 tickets are available for each performance, and it is strongly recommended that you obtain your tickets in advance. Tickets and information will be available in Uxbridge at Blue Heron Books and Presents, Presents, Presents.
