Ayr Choral Online Handel’s Messiah
In March this year, the members of Ayr Choral sadly had to cancel what was going to be a spectacular version of Handel’s Messiah in Ayr Town Hall. After six months, and enthusiastic responses to exploring a range of choral music in Zoom rehearsals online, Messiah is back with an exciting 90 minute performance. Singers will access the music through Zoom, and our audience can find us on Ayr Choral’s YouTube Channel, at 7pm on 25th October. With a recorded small orchestra and four exceptional soloists, choir members and their friends will join our Conductor, Andrew McTaggart, to give Messiah their all from the privacy of their own homes.
There will be two Zoom rehearsals on 13th and 20th October at 7.30 pm, which are open to all members of Ayr Choral, and to any Messiah fans, guests and friends who would like to join in this particular “Come and Sing”.
To book a place or get more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or check us out on www.ayrchoralunion.net or @ayrchoralunion on Facebook.
No one has been unaffected by the impact of Covid 19. Live performances have been cut drastically and therefore many freelance musicians have had their incomes severely diminished. The first performance of Messiah in the UK was a charitable act to raise funds for a foundling hospital. In this spirit and in the tradition of Messiah performances helping those living through difficult times, the members of Ayr Choral will be inviting donations to “Help Musicians Scotland”- the charity helping freelance musicians through these challenging months.
