‘Handel and Christmas Pops’ Dec. 3 and 4

Event has passed

    Sheepscot Chorus invites you to a "Handel and Christmas Pops!" concert at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3 and Sunday, Dec. 4 at the Boothbay Harbor Congregational Church, 125 Townsend Ave., Boothbay Harbor.

    Handel’s "Messiah" will be featured; performed with professional soloists and a 13-piece orchestra. "'Messiah' is often enjoyed as a sing-along, but concert performances like this are harder to come by," says director Linda Blanchard. "There’s something special about being able to share such a towering masterwork with our community." "Messiah" will feature the vocal talents of soprano Jennifer Bates, alto Joëlle Morris, tenor Jesse Wakeman, and bass John David Adams.

    Holiday Pops favorites accompanied by the orchestra will round out the second half of the program. A highlight will be one of Robert Shaw's arrangements of Christmas carols, "The Many Moods of Christmas, Suite IV." Co-director and accompanist Sean Fleming has a knack for bringing together top-notch musicians for our holiday pops orchestra, sure to set toes tapping!
