Sing Messiah with OCS this Christmas

Submitted by Orcas Choral Society.

Orcas Choral Society invites all Orcas Island singers to sing Handel’s Messiah this December 1-3 at the Orcas Center. Rehearsals begin September 26 at 7 p.m.

“George Frederic Handel was a showman, in this case setting the most sacred of texts,” said Bruce Langford, Choral Society Artistic Director. “It is our intent to honor both the excitement and profound nature of his most popular work.”

Established in 1978 performing selections from Messiah, Orcas Choral Society has since sung concerts of everything from traditional Christmas carols to Bach’s B-Minor Mass under the batons of directors Catherine Pederson, Roger Sherman, Marianne Lewis, and now, Bruce Langford.

If you love to sing and want to learn more about music, OCS is for you. Join us! For more information, contact OCS Membership Chair, Faith Heath, at

If you can’t make rehearsals, fear not: the Sunday matinee, Dec. 3, will be a sing-along Messiah.
