Third performance just added. Central Oregon Mastersingers accompanied by an 18-piece orchestra present the choral masterpiece, under the direction of Clyde Thompson.
General Admission Seating $18Nearly seventy singers and instrumentalists will fill the stage of the Tower Theatre on December 17 and 18 with the sounds of Handel’s “Messiah.” The Central Oregon Mastersingers and Orchestra under the direction of Clyde Thompson will present the work on December 17 at 2:00pm and 7:30 pm and December 18 at 2pm.
Soloists in these performances will include singers familiar to Central Oregon audiences, including Trish Sewell, Katrina Hays, James Knox, and Steve Osterkamp. The 20-piece orchestra will replicate the baroque orchestra of Handel’s day, with pairs of oboes and trumpets, bassoon, harpsichord, and strings.
The audience will be asked to become part of the chorus on three
movements, honoring the long tradition of Messiah “sing-alongs” that
have become part of the unique heritage of this iconic work.
