We are once again fast approaching the time of year when the Charlotte Music Club and the Charlotte Civic Orchestra will hold their annual performance of Handel's Messiah, Part I. The Messiah is a must see event for the holiday season, featuring a full orchestra, a chorus of about 65, a harpsichord, and Ginger Wyrick as conductor. It will be performed on Sunday, December 5th at 3:00pm. It will be held at the First United Methodist Church at 501 Tryon Street. Better yet, admission is free. Parking is also free and located in the Odell Parking Garage off of 9th Street. I will be playing with the cello section for this event and am looking forward to a fun time and hoping for a large audience.
