Choir member? Shower diva? Wherever, and whatever you sing, this is your chance to be part of 1000 voices, rehearsing and performing in the nation’s favourite choral work. A massive scratch performance of Handel’s Messiah, will take place, in just one day, on Sunday 6 November at the Wales Millennium Centre (WMC) – and it’s all for a good cause.
Mega Messiah will bring together 1000 singers, of all abilities and from all walks of life. It will also offer a showcase for our young talent here at the College, who will sing the solos and provide their own 70 piece orchestra and choir.
Music student, Toks Dada, is Orchestral Manager, and David Jackson, a WMC board member, and former Vice president (Enterprise & Events ) at the Royal Welsh College is part of the organisational team, which is led by Fairbridge supporter, Deborah Perkin.
“Mega Messiah will appeal to anyone who has ever wanted to experience the thrill of being part of a massed choir, the honour of singing at the Wales Millennium Centre, and the satisfaction of helping to put young Welsh lives back on track in the charitable spirit of Handel himself. We are making history, and you could be part of it,” she says.
Tickets cost £15 for singers, or £12 for groups of 10 or more. Audience tickets at £10. Tickets can be bought from WMC box office on 029 2063 6464 or at http://www.wmc.org.uk where you can find more details about this event.
