Invitation to participate in Messiah

This is the last of my three emails today. 

This message is from Doris D'Asto, the chairman of the board, and this year's organizer of the our Brigham City Messiah Sing-in. Mr Dunn did mention last Saturday that our five rehearsals for Messiah would begin this coming Saturday, and that they would end by noon, beginning just after regular rehearsal.

Here is the information from Doris:


  We are now organizing for this year's presentation of Messiah on Friday, December 6th at 7:00 p.m.  Would you please let me know if you will be able to perform with us and, after reviewing the schedule, if you can make most of the rehearsals?

   Here are the details for this year:

  • We have confirmed the following dates for the Tabernacle: Dress Rehearsal on Thursday, December 5th, 2019; performance on Friday, December 6th at 7 p.m.
  • We have confirmation from all four vocalists who will be performing with us this year as well as our star trumpet player, James.
  • Conrad Dunn will once again conduct our Messiah orchestra.  He asks for musicians to try and attend every rehearsal.  There are only 5 Saturday rehearsals scheduled.
  • Rehearsals will be like last year: right after the Youth Symphony and Chamber orchestras end at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings at the Promontory School of Expeditionary Learning in Perry.
  • Josie Anderson, our Music Librarian/Managing Assistant, will be signing out music this Saturday for those who need to borrow it.
  • Please note that there are Saturdays we absolutely cannot rehearse due to Symphony Retreat, Symphony/Chamber November concert, and Thanksgiving Break.  
  • Last year we had a desperate situation with few 1st violinists, even at the Dress Rehearsal.  Please help us have good attendance and an excellent, inspiring presentation of Messiah."
