Your professional orchestra in the valley, bringing awareness and appreciation for music of the highest calibre.
The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra & Chorus are proud to announce their 2018-2019 season
The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra & Chorus invite you to experience the intimacy and drama of Messiah, Handel’s most beloved choral masterpiece.
Messiah transcends cultural, geographic, and religious boundaries with its message of charity, peace, goodwill, and sacrifice. It also contains some of the most uplifting, touching, and magnificent music ever composed.
Although the subject material of Messiah is drawn from Christian doctrine and musically narrates the life story of Christ, considerable numbers of people from a variety of cultures and beliefs consider the work to be one of their most cherished holiday customs.
Beginning Dec. 13th in Abbotsford, and for three subsequent evenings in different Fraser Valley locales, Paula DeWit will direct four amazing, young soloists, the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra & Chorus, Chilliwack Children’s and Youth choir and Belle Voci in performances of MESSIAH IN THE VALLEY. See below for a Messiah concert location near you.
“Among our new soloists this year is emerging artist, soprano Colleen Donnelly, daughter of Vancouver Canuck’s O Canada singer, Mark Donnelly. Also performing for the first time with the Chilliwack Symphony, are tenor Taylor Fawcett and Aldergrove bass-baritone, David Rosborough. Returning to sing the alto solo parts of Messiah is popular countertenor Shane Hanson, originally from Chilliwack,” states Paula DeWit.
