Wellesley, MA – Now in its third year, the Unitarian Universalist Society of Wellesley Hills once
more throws open its doors to welcome all to its Community Messiah Sing. Local choral singers,
lovers of classical and holiday music, young and old – all are welcome to come usher in the
holiday season with this festive offering of Part I of George Frederic Handel's Messiah oratorio
(which covers the Christmas story.) Handel's best-known and widely loved music comes to life
realized by 4 stellar professional soloists, a professional chamber orchestra with organ and
harpsichord, and YOU, the audience, standing to sing along on the choruses.
(Not a singer? Not a problem! Listeners of all ages are very welcome to come enjoy this seasonal
classic.) Entry is free; donations are gratefully accepted.
This year's soloists include Sarah Kornfeld, soprano, a classically trained local singer and
actress, well-versed in musical theater and opera. In addition to performing throughout the
Greater Boston area, Sarah is on the faculty of the Tenacre Country Day School in Wellesley.
Christina English, mezzo-soprano. Noted for her "rich and mellifluous" voice (Opera News) and
"striking" presence (The Arts Fuse), mezzo-soprano Christina English brings musical sensitivity
and dramatic commitment to a versatile array of concert, opera, and musical theater stages. She
is a long-time member of the Boston Baroque chorus and a founding core member of Lorelei
Other soloists include Jason Wang, tenor, and American bass-baritone, Mark Andrew Cleveland.
The orchestra for the Community Messiah Sing consists of some of Boston's finest free-lancers,
including some local instrumental teachers. Violist Leanne Rabesa teaches in the Wellesley
Public Schools, and organist Max Holman is Director of Boston Saengerfest Men's Chorus and
teaches at Brimmer and May School. Each year, advanced high school students of the orchestra
members are invited to join their teachers on stage and play the Hallelujah Chorus to close out
the Community Messiah Sing.
