About (from clancymusic.com.au):
Cooma’s own production of Handel’s Messiah is on the 24th November 2012. This year we will be gathering singers from further a field including Young, Cooma, Canberra, Jindabyne, Bombala, Regional NSW and the South Coast. A Chamber Orchestra made up of hand picked musicians, they will be professional, semi-professional and amateurs combining to achieve a rich sound. Don’t panic if you are new to Messiah as we are only learning a portion of the 3 hour long work. There is a selection of chorus items and solo parts all accompanied by Orchestra.
The cost to participate is $15 per person. This will be for a 1 day of extensive rehearsal and the concert in the evening all held at the Cooma Multifunction Centre. Singers will have to learn the music before the day of the performance in your own time. To register your interest in participating this year as either an individual or to register the participation of your whole choir please email email@example.com
Last year saw an amazing amount of singers and a huge energy with over 100 singers and the audience was able to just fit into the hall. With that said, this year should be even better and bigger. A new venue for this year to allow for the larger performance cast. So come and join us in Cooma for the spectacular.
The day will start at the Cooma Multifunction Centre at 9:30am, located just off Boundary street Cooma. We will learn and workshop the 6 chorus items selected from the entire work and work with the orchestra and soloists on the performance at 4pm.
We are still accepting new singers to start with the music, please feel free to join us, even if you have not sung in a long time or ever before as we should be able to have a fun day and create some wonderful music.
Amazing news, this year we will be also performing Handel’s Messiah in Young at the wonderful Town Hall. This concert in Young will be on Sunday 25th November 2012. The concert will also be showcasing local singers from the Young region as well as tourists from the Cooma production making the hike to Young for the day. Yes, you can sing in both productions should you be interested and keen. In fact it would be encouraged. We are arranging for performers to be billeted in each others home towns to reduce costs but of course people can find their own accommodation and make a great weekend of this event should you desire. For those singers wanting to perform in both concerts and experience this wonderful work twice in two days then they will also have to pay for each day. $30 for both days experiencing performing in Cooma and in Young.
A great big thanks to the wonderful hosts for the Young performance, ‘The Choir of the Southern Cross’. The help and support that they have offered to make this event happen has been extraordinary.
