Volunteers needed for 25th 'Messiah' sing
MONT VERNON - For the 25th year, 100 volunteers from 19 communities are preparing to sing selections from Handel's "Messiah" on the first weekend of December. There are no auditions; all you need is a love of great music and a willingness to sing in a chorus. Auditions will be held for soloists after the second rehearsal. There are three rehearsals on the three Sundays leading up to the performances. Bring a G. Schirmer score (or buy one of ours for $10), and a pencil and water to rehearsals.
The chorus is under the direction of Jennifer Erdody, director of the Souhegan Valley Chorus and a music teacher at Milford High School, with accompanist Jill Slocum.
Rehearsals are from 6:45 to 9 p.m. on these Sundays: Nov. 11, 18, and 25 at the Mont Vernon Congregational Church at the top of Route 13 on South Main Street, Mont Vernon. There will be two performances: Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Dec. 2 at 4 p.m., also at the church.
No tickets are sold; a free-will offering is taken at performances. This is a nonprofit organization, and businesses are invited to contribute or to sponsor a musician for $100. For more information, call 673-3510.
