Pilgrim Festival Chorus co-director William B. Richter leads the audience in both carols and the familiar choruses from Part I of Handel’s masterpiece, concluding with the Hallelujah Chorus. Solos selected from Part I, the Christmas portion, will be sung by featured local vocalists. Organ accompaniment is performed by PFC accompanist/co-director, Elizabeth Chapman Reilly, music director at the church, often enriched by visiting guest instrumental musicians.
In Messiah Sings, popular throughout the area for more than 40 years, the audience can either sing or listen. Scores are available to borrow on site, or attendees are welcome to bring their own. Funds raised from this event support the PFC’s yearly operating expenses.
