Each year, the Merrill High School Choir Department hosts its Holiday Concert. As per tradition at this concert, singers from the community (and a few students) will make up a choir to sing some of Handel’s “Messiah.” This event is taking place again this year, and they are in need of your help. It does not matter if you have ever sung the Messiah before or if you sing it every other weekend, we want you.
There are scheduled rehearsals in the high school choir room (enter the high school through the courtyard and door #13, follow the sounds from there) to help brush up the piece before the performance. These rehearsals are not required, but recommended if you haven’t sung this piece before or it has been many years. These rehearsals will take place on Dec. 5, 7, 12 and 13 starting at 6 p.m. Music will be provided, so all you need to bring is yourself and your voice.
We will then have a dress rehearsal on Sunday, Dec. 17, in the high school auditorium at 10 a.m. with an orchestra and full accompaniment for final touch-ups. If you are interested in singing with us, please plan on attending this dress rehearsal.
The concert will take place on Monday, Dec. 18, at 7 p.m. in the high school auditorium, with the community choir singing in the second half of the performance.
Please consider joining us for this yearly tradition, whatever your ability level. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Josh Olson by phone (715-536-4594 ext. 18095) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
