Annual Mountain Messiah on Sunday

Last year's annual Mountain Messiah.

Last year's annual Mountain Messiah.

The 20th Annual Mountain Messiah will be held on Sunday, December 11 at the YMCA of the Rockies Snow Mountain Ranch Chapel.

The pre-show event will start at 6:30 p.m. and the concert will start at 7 p.m.

The Mountain Messiah is a community sing-a-long concert. It was the brainchild of local musician and advocate of the arts, the late Joan Shaw. Although many communities have Messiah Sings, this one has a unique claim, at 8,850 feet, it is the highest sung rendition of G. F. Handel’s Messiah.

Children are welcome to attend and hear this time honored music sung with great energy and joy.

This event is possible due to the pool of local talented vocalists, pianists, and instrumentalists.

The concert will feature the beloved and well-known Hallelujah Chorus as well as various other choruses, solos and instrumental numbers.

The pre-show is a traditional favorite. Local music students will be performing as you enter the chapel.

There are no rehearsals. All are invited to come and sing or just to listen. Bring your Messiah score with you or we will have musical scores available at the sing-a-long. There is an Afterglow party following the event with more musical merriment. Everyone is welcome to bring and share some holiday cookies.
