Arlington/Marysville Community Choir forming to present Handel's 'Messiah'

ARLINGTON — George Fredric Handel's "Messiah" will soon fill the rafters of the Linda M. Byrnes Performing Arts Center in Arlington. All area vocalists and instrumentalists are welcome to join the Arlington Community Choir, which forms every two years to present this musical classic.

The choir will rehearse the nine well-known Christmas selections of "Messiah" on Monday nights, from 7-8:30 p.m. in the Arlington High School choir room B-113, starting on Monday, Nov. 5.

While the choir has traditionally been a large group of experienced area singers from Everett to Bellingham, participation is open to all.

The choir will combine with a community orchestra for a Sunday, Dec. 9, performance at 2:30 p.m., which will also incorporate various other school and community musical ensembles.

Further information concerning this opportunity is available from choral director Lyle Forde at 360-659-4686 and
