Calling all singers for Do-It-Yourself Messiah

Tryon Fine Arts Center will once again host a community gathering to sing one of the world’s greatest pieces of music, The Messiah, by George Frideric Handel, on Thursday, Dec. 13 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 thrilling 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 student and young professional soloists. There is no charge for this event. For more information, call 859-8322 or visit tryonarts.org. (photo submitted by Marianne Carruth)
