For the past 12 years, VCC’s “Sing-it-Yourself Messiah” is the Tri-Valley holiday tradition. The event is open to all singers of all ages in the community to join in singing Part I of Handel’s great choral masterpiece, also known as the Christmas portion of “Messiah”, which will conclude with a powerful rendition of the “Hallelujah Chorus”.
“After twelve years of hosting this event for the community, it continues to be popular,” says Valley Concert Chorale President Bobby Jensen. “Each year the number of singers increases with well over 100 singers from around the Tri-Valley and beyond of all ages and backgrounds. It’s great being able to offer this musical experience to the area, complete with professional soloists and accompaniment by our internationally-known concert pianist Daniel Glover.”
Singers are encouraged to bring their own copy of “Messiah,” though there will be some copies available to borrow. The event is also open to those who wish to listen to the performance.
Tickets are $12. Advance tickets may be ordered by calling (925) 866-4003, by visiting the Chorale’s website at www.valleyconcertchorale.org.
