Easter Sunday, April 12, 2009
If you would like to donate to support this musical gift to our community please click on our Donor Information page.
Rehearsals and the performance will be under the direction of Artistic Director James Werner. Jim is an accomplished tenor, Director of Music at the First Methodist Church, Director of the Shumann Singers, Artistic Director of the High Desert Opera, and a voice teacher. Our contract with Jim gives him complete artistic authority over the performance.
Lane Luke will be our rehearsal accompanist. Carlos Elias will be our concertmaster. Philip Wyse will play the harpsicord.
If you plan to attend the rehearsal, click on these special instructions. We will rehearse each subsequent Sunday afternoon at 2-4pm. A detailed list of all the rehearsal times is available at Rehearsal Schedule.
This year, and in subsequent years, we will be using the Leonard Van Camp Edition of the Messiah vocal score. We will have 75 copies of the score for sale at the first rehearsal. The price is $8.00. If you already have a different score, bring it as differences will be minor. The page layout of the Leonard Van Camp edition is identical to the Shirmer edition so it is easy to "be on the same page" if you use the Shirmer edition.
