Tryon Fine Arts Center starts off the Christmas season with the community gathering to sing one of the world’s greatest pieces of music, “The Messiah,” by George Frederic Handel, on Thursday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. on the Veh Stage. All singers and want-to-be singers are welcome — no skill is necessary, just the love of being a part of the music.
This year’s “Do-it-Yourself” Messiah is made possible by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation and features conductor Mark Schweizer, accompanist Beth Child and graduate student soloists from Converse College. There is no charge for this event. For more information, call 828-859-8322 or visit tryonarts.org.
