Choir ready to start rehearsals

It’s the beginning of the Tahoe Choir’s 35th season. The first rehearsal of Handel’s Messiah begins at 7 p.m. Sept. 19 in the choral rehearsal room of the Fine Arts Building at Lake Tahoe Community College.

Under the direction of Linda Mitchell, the community choir, in conjunction with LTCC’s chorus will rehearse for the three performances of the Messiah slated the second weekend in December.

If you have some experience in choral singing, even if it was a few years back in high school or in a church choir, you are encouraged to become a member of the Tahoe Choir. You may register for it for college credit through LTCC.

The choir will offer a special workshop with David Gordon of the Carmel Bach Festival on Oct. 28. The last time a well-known name in choral music worked with the choir, conducting his own work with the Tahoe Choir and members of the Reno Philharmonic, was in 1984 when Gregg Smith presided on the podium.
