Audience members are invited to dress as their favorite character or come as they are. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Admission is Pay-What-You-Can.

Handel's Messiah Community Sing is This Sunday
At 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9 is the 15th Annual “Messiah” Community Sing at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on Pearl Street in Wellsboro. Composed by George Frideric Handel in 1741, the “Messiah" is the signal work of the Christmas season for millions of people around the world.

To be performed is the Christmas portion of Handel's "Messiah." The text is taken from the Bible and tells the Christmas story. Audience members can sing the five choruses, which includes the "Hallelujah" chorus, and listen to Mansfield University choral program students sing the solos. "Everyone is welcome to come and sing the choruses or listen to them," said Putnam who coordinates the event. "The music is beautiful. The entire program will be about an hour."

There will be a practice session for those who want to learn or review the "Messiah” choruses this Saturday, Dec. 8 at 1:30 p.m. in St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Pearl Street in Wellsboro. Each vocal section will practice the choruses separately and then together.

Conducting this year's community sing is Stephen Johnson who was born and raised in Little Marsh, Tioga County, Pa., He is in his 26th year as a faculty member in Clarion University's Department of Visual and Performing Arts where he conducts the university choirs, teaches vocal studio and voice class.

On Dec. 9, audience members who want to sing the choruses will be encouraged to sit in the soprano, alto, tenor and bass vocal sections. Musical scores will be provided or participants are welcome to bring their own. There will be plenty of room for those who choose to listen but not sing.

Soloists from Mansfield University include: sopranos, Deanna Mogianesi of Macungie, Molly Cerep of Scranton, Quessa Brown of Elmira Heights, N.Y. and Jessica Neidinger of Duncannon; mezzo-soprano, Jessica Nistad of Hawley; bass-baritone, Matthew Merolla of Dalton; baritone, Robert Flora of Owings, Maryland; and tenor, Kyle Cannon of Marathon, New York. The students major in vocal performance, music education or both.

Featured will be a string quartet including Dr. Kenneth Sarch and Emilie Tupper, both on violin; Megan Wike on viola and Rachel Boll on cello.

The Sherwood Motel is the sponsor of the community sing. Admission at the door is Pay-What-You-Can. Proceeds will benefit the Hamilton-Gibson Children and Youth Choirs. No reservations are required.
