Vernon Community Singers to sing Handel’s Hallelujah!

The Vernon Community Singers are about to give their version in what is likely the most famous song from composer George Frideric Handel’s choral repertoire.

The choir is performing the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah at their annual Christmas concert.

“With Terry Logan conducting and Marjorie Close accompanying, you can look forward to a very special welcome to Christmas,” said the singers’ publicist and member Ruth Meyer.

A choir of approximately 120 members, the Vernon Community Singers will share their love of music and community spirit, including using funds raised from their concerts to support community service organizations and groups in the Vernon area.

“We also provide scholarships and financial assistance for non-profit community organizations which involve music or education/learning,” reads the choir’s website.

The choir has two sessions per year: fall-winter and winter-spring, with entry points for new members at each. No audition or experience is necessary, just a love of singing. Two concerts are presented at the end of each session.

Other activities the choir participates in include the Rotary Carol Festival, taking place this year on Dec. 5 and 6 at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, as well as the Coldstream Remembrance Day ceremony, street carolling and a mini concert at Silver Star Mountain Resort during the holiday season.

The Vernon Community Singers  Christmas concert is Friday, Dec. 11 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, Dec. 12 at 2 p.m. at Trinity United Church, 3300 Alexis Park Dr. Tickets are  $12 each (children under 12 are free), available from members of the choir as well as at the Schubert Centre.
