Choir, orchestra to perform Handel’s Messiah

The world-famous music, composed in just 24 days, will have one performance in Terrace, B.C.

While most people in the month of December are trying to fit too many things into too few days, it is gratifying how the performing arts can provide a couple hours of time to relax, relish beautiful music and enjoy the visual impact of what is on stage.

In Terrace, there have already been such enjoyable moments with the Pacific Mist Chorus, Caledonia Senior Secondary School’s musical production of Footloose, community carol singing and story-telling at the Terrace Little Theatre. And there are numerous school concerts yet to come.

A special treat this year will be on December 21 in Terrace when the community will be treated to one of the most famous and traditional performances of all time: George Frederick Handel’s Messiah. There was also a performance in Kitimat Dec. 18.

This amazing work for choir, orchestra and keyboard was composed in just 24 days, and had its world premiere in Dublin.

It is now performed annually around the world at Christmas and Easter.

In the Pacific Northwest, this work will be performed by the Terrace R.E. (Real Emotion) Choir made up of community members and conducted by Sam Kim.

While relatively new to Terrace, Kim has brought this group of singers to a very high standard of performance in a very short time.

The choir will be accompanied by the Terrace Symphony Orchestra, and SanHwa Kim will be on piano.

Featured soloists are Freda Ross, Sarah Kirwin, Kim Webb, John Crawford, Peter Arcadi, and Gary Rysavy.

The Terrace Symphony Orchestra and the RE ( Real Emotion) Choir present Handel’s Messiah, conducted by Sam Kim, at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 21 at the REM Lee Theatre. Tickets at Misty River Books.
