SVCC Chorus Will Present MESSIAH Part II for Spring Concert

The Southside Virginia Community College Chorus is inviting all music lovers and singers to join this group. The  first rehearsal for the spring will be held on Sunday, January 19, 2020 from 6:00 - 8:00PM at the South Hill Presbyterian Church. 

All rehearsals are on Sundays, 6:00 – 8:00 PM.  except February 2 which will be from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. and some possible extended rehearsals leading up to the Spring Concerts. 

The concerts are widely received and venues are consistently packed by enthusiastic audiences. Many may want to be a part of this organization, not only for its wide acceptance, but because you simply love to sing!  Spring concerts will be on April 18 and 19, with string ensemble with one performance in Lawrenceville as part of the ArtBank of Southside Virginia’s offerings.

The Messiah, part II, by George Frederick Handel (1685 – 1759) is the selection including scenes of the Passion story and Resurrection to include “Hallelujah.”  The text is purely Biblical,  carefully assembled by Charles Jennens in (1740-41).   Handel wrote the entire Oratorio in two weeks and this is the only piece of music to be performed continuously every year since 1742 a fact that might entice singers to join the legacy.

Your voice; just as each violin, trumpet, and flute, in an orchestra; can become a part of this glorious ensemble by simply coming to rehearsals each week on Sunday evenings. Through vocal techniques and gentle understanding, your natural voice will be brought forward, drawing out your inner song. Find your gift, your voice, your instrument, by becoming a part of this joyful ensemble with Carol Henderson, Director, and Sally Tharrington, Pianist.

Our partial support from the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts (The Arts Endowment) for 2019-2020 season is a proud sign of our continuing effort to bring the best of the arts to the community. We are committed to our singers, to our audiences, and to the communities in Southside Virginia and appreciate continued support from the SVCC Foundation.
