A FREE concert of excerpts from Handel’s Messiah will be presented by the Sunshine Coast Choral Society

George Friderick Handel composed his entire epic oratorio, Messiah, over the course of an astounding 24 days – a feat, as we know, not unusual for him. He was no stranger to such lightning-speed bouts of epic composition. His Messiah has long been a recognised seasonal favourite, as the Christmas season approaches. 

On the 26th November 2017, Hinterland residents and visitors will be treated to a musical degustation of excerpts from this glorious oratorio, in half-hour, bite-sized courses at three venues through our Hinterland.

The Sunshine Coast Choral Society, with guest performers, will present these offerings under the expert and always-infectious baton of our conductor, Adrian King, more than ably-assisted by our enormously-talented accompanist, Natasha Koch, at the piano. 

Performances of excerpts on the 26th November, shall take place at …           

11.00am at Montville Village Hall, Montville          
1.00pm at White Eagle Lodge, Witta           
2.30pm at Mooloolah Public Hall, Mooloolah 

A more complete rendering of the work will be performed in a full concert at Buderim’s Sienna College on the afternoon of the 10th December 2017.  The Sunshine Coast Choral Society will be joined by soloists Kathryn O’Halloran(Soprano), Naomi Flatman (nee Bakker – Mezzo-Soprano), Phillip Costovski (Tenor) and Oliver Boyd (Bass). These soloists have sung together to great acclaim in our most recent (sold out) concert of Mozart’s Requiem and Vespers, and are building a solid reputation for excellence in performance. Also participating in this concert are singers from other Sunshine Coast Choral Societies, such as Noosa Chorale, Buderim Male Choir, U3A Choir, Oriana Choir, Sunshine Coast University Choir and others. The orchestra for this performance is the Sunshine Coast Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of Adrian King, our multi-talented Musical Director.
