NCC to present "Messiah"
November 28, 2019
North Coast Chorale will present the Annual “Messiah” Sing-Along/Play-Along on Sunday, December 1 at the Performing Arts Center on the corner of 16th and Franklin St., Astoria, at 4 p.m. As in the past, the purpose for this event is to bring an awareness of those who are less fortunate in the community and raise money for the Clatsop Community Action Regional Food Bank.
This North Coast Chorale sponsored event is free to the public, the only request – a donation of food or money. Last year alone, over $1,250 was raised plus 96 pounds of food. Everything received goes directly to the Clatsop Community Action’s Regional Foodbank, which distributes to local foodbanks.
There are a variety of ways one can enjoy this afternoon of musical enchantment. First, one can simply listen to the choruses and arias sung by the Chorale and soloists. Or, if one is inclined to “Sing Along,” scores will be available in the lobby. Strings, horns, and percussionists are also invited; bring an instrument and play along with the accompanist to make it a delightful afternoon for everyone.
Also coming December 13, 20 and 22, “Amahl and the Night Visitors,” performed by NCC and local soloists.
