If you’re in the mood for some classical music to commemorate the holiday season from a Christian perspective, the Regina Symphony Orchestra is presenting two performances of German-born composer George Frideric Handel’s 1742 choral opus Messiah this weekend.
The first goes at Knox Met Church on Saturday Dec. 12 at 8 p.m., and will see the RSO, with Hart Godden as guest conductor, joined on stage by the Regina Philharmonic Chorus, Halcyon Chamber Choir and several soloists.
The second performance of Messiah will be held at the same venue on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 3 p.m. It will take the form of a sing-a-long with members of the audience invited to belt it out to the best of their ability.
You can find out more about both performances on the RSO website.
