The 58th annual presentation of Handel's beloved "Messiah" will take place this coming weekend.

This year the tradition however is expanding with presentations in both Castle Dale and in Price, a first for the musical presentation.

The first performance will be at Emery High School in the auditorium on Dec. 2 at 7 p.m.

The second performance will be in Price on Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the city's Civic Auditorium.

The choir for the program is made up of singers from both counties and totals almost 100 voices.

The orchestra is a likewise joint effort of both communities, including string, brass, and woodwind players. Soloists are all local singers.

The ensemble is directed by College of Eastern Utah music department faculty member Russell Wilson, who himself participated in his first performance at the Carbon High School in 1966 under the direction of Dorothy Brown.

"I am dedicated to keeping the long standing tradition a vital part of the holiday season," said Wilson.

The program is appropriate for those 12 years old and older. It is asked that infants not be brought in to either performance, since digital recordings are being made for the participants this year.

All performances will begin promptly on time.
