Pick Of The Day (Tomorrow Edition): Handel’s Messiah

I’m not sure about the status of tickets for this performance of Handel’s ode to the life of Christ that the Regina Symphony Orchestra presents annually in cooperation with the Halcyon Chamber Choir and Regina Philharmonic Chorus. But it’s usually pretty popular, and it’s being performed in the relatively snug confines (compared to Conexus Arts Centre, anyway) of  Knox-Metropolitan Church in downtown Regina. You can find out about the availability of tickets by calling 1-866-973-9614.

The performance goes Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., and guest soloists are Leora Joy Godden (alto), Chelsea Mahan (soprano), Floyd Gadd (tenor) and Dominic Gregario (baritone).

To give you a taste of Handel’s work, here’s a short excerpt from a performance of Messiah in Vienna:
