Messiah concert to take place next week

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

Carbon County's 61st annual presentation of Handel's Messiah in Price will take place on Sunday and Monday Dec. 6 and 7.

This traditional holiday celebration is being performed by the Price Civic Chorale and Orchestra and the College of Eastern Utah Chamber Singers, directed by Russell Wilson.

The choir boasts 90 members this year, with a full orchestra of 26 players, a larger group than in many previous years.

Concertgoers should note that the event is being moved to Carbon High School this year, where for many years it was performed under the baton of Dorothy Brown, the extraordinary choir teacher who started this grand tradition just after World War II.

The ensemble has outgrown the smaller stage downtown, and is grateful to be invited to use the auditorium at the high school.

This two concerts feature several first-time soloists from the local area, including Ben Clements, Malcolm Howard, Ron Patterson and Farrah Nelson. Other soloists who are well-known to Price audiences in previous years include Lila Jameson, Kristi Ohlwiler, Tara Compagni and Jenna Rae Jepson.

Performances begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. and the performers respectfully request that attendance should be limited to those twelve and older.

A small donation will be requested at the door, to help cover growing costs of the performance.
