Yes, it’s coming! The Eighth Annual Messiah Sing-along!
This year will be especially celebratory, as it’s the 45th anniversary of the Bainbridge Chorale. We proudly take our place in the great tradition of community participation in recreating Handel’s beloved masterpiece, attracting Messiah enthusiasts from both on- and off-Island, bringing us together to share the glory of this masterwork in a relaxed setting. You’ll be led through the choruses by Bainbridge Chorale Artistic Director Michael Austin Miller, currently in his seventh season with the Chorale, and sixth year of conducting this event. We are fortunate to have with us again this year Soprano Susy Wingate, Mezzo Cindy Harris, the versatile Matthew Blegen who will take the tenor solos and some of the baritone parts as well, and newcomer Eric Blegen, who will sing some of the baritone solos. Eric is an alumnus of the St. Olaf Chapel Choir, and we are pleased to welcome him this year.
