Handel’s ‘Messiah’ singalong set for Saturday

SEQUIM — The public is invited to “join voices” during the 20th-annual community “Messiah” sing-along Saturday.

The concert will be from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave.

Attendees are invited to sing and listen to selections from George Frederick Handel’s oratorio and in the process raise funds for food banks in Sequim and Port Angeles.

Each dollar donated will be matched by an anonymous couple who hope to see this event continue as both a community event, as well as a significant way to raise funds for use in Clallam County, event organizers said.

“Messiah” was first conducted by Handel and performed to raise funds for an orphanage in Dublin, Ireland, in 1742.

It has a long history of being involved with raising funds for community support.

Musical directors include Jerry Wright and Joel Yelland, with accompaniment from local instrumentalists and soloists. An intermission with punch and cookies will be provided.

Scores for the chorus are borrowed from several sources — including Port Angeles Symphony and First Presbyterian Church in Seattle — or people may bring their own.
