Once more I enjoyed singing in Händel's Messiah, did so with Pieter together in 1995 in a community concert.
Georg Friedrich Händel was German by birth but lived and performed in England.
There is no better language than music and especially this masterpiece, for touching ones soul...

Chancel Choir and Orchestra
Tenor Collin LaHood who traveled from Macon to join us.
Matthew Kersey also traveled quite a distance for teaming up with us to sing his solo pieces.
Matthew Kersey ended up singing the parts of Elizabeth Colemann as she was unable to be with us...
Matthew is an excellent choral educator who studied at Georgia Southern University in Statesboro.
Soprano Cindy Claxton did an excellent job singing her solos.
Soprano Kathy Jones, as usual did an excellent job!
Erica Cliett, Oboe
Jeremy Messenger, Trumpet
Mark Lee, Trumpet
Richard Horne, Timpani
Zachary Golden, Organ
Ben Cork, Violin
Julia Sellman, Violin
Amanda Zhang, Violin
Brant Harlacher, Cello
Our Director M. Dwain Little put a lot of time and effort into this and it was worth it!
Pieter said, he would not have wanted to MISS these two performances.
It makes one happy and most people appreciated it.
Such a joy to perform for others, to enjoy Händel's Masterpiece.
The final part of Hallelujah was well received and turned into a sing along for some.
Merry Christmas to ALL!
