ASTORIA — The North Coast Chorale is looking for instrumentalists who have at one time played Handel’s “Messiah,” or those who have never played this well-loved piece of music but would rather try playing instead of singing. Now is your opportunity to accompany like-minded singers who love this piece and want to have a wonderful time singing along with others.

This event will take place at the Clatsop Community College Performing Arts Center at 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 25, and will be co-sponsored by the Astoria Christian Church and Thrivent Financial representative Constance Waisanen. Cash and check donations will be accepted, with all funds going to local food banks. Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will also provide partial matching funds.

Come out and enjoy and evening of wonderful music that has been sung for almost 300 years. Listen to some outstanding soloists continue this tradition of Handel’s Messiah.

Interested instrumentalists, call 503-338-8403. Instrumental scores are available.
