Pacific Chamber Symphony - Handel's Messiah

At the Bankhead Theater

Pacific Chamber Symphony - Handel's Messiah
The Bankhead Theatre will once again resound with the greatest of all holiday treats. The Pacific Chamber Symphony will excite us again with a special performance of Handel's Messiah. The concert will feature a chorus made up of outstanding local soloists and chorus members.

Handel's Messiah is one of the monumental works in all of musical literature. It is probably the most widely performed religious work in the world. It was an instant success when it was first performed in 1742. It was written in just 24 days.

In 1741, Handel was broke, tired, and discouraged. Two unrelated events converged to change all that. First, Handel's wealthy friend, Charles Jensen, gave Handel a libretto that he had written based on the bible and the book of common prayer, and asked him to provide a musical setting. Second, Handel received a commission from a Dublin charity to compose a work for a benefit performance. Handel combined these two commissions, and the result was The Messiah.

On August 22, he started work on the piece, never leaving his house, and barely pausing to eat or sleep. A little over three weeks later, one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of music was complete.

The work was first performed at a charitable event in Dublin on April 13, 1742, with Handel himself conducting from the keyboard. It was an immediate success. It raised 400 pounds and freed 142 men from debtor's prison.

Today, The Messiah is often performed in large halls, with a large chorus and a large orchestra. The original chorus and orchestra, although large by contemporary standards, were of more moderate size. The Pacific Chamber Symphony's interpretation adheres more closely to the earlier performances, and contains many elements from the original Dublin presentation. This approach allows for more subtlety and attention to detail.

In any version, however, The Messiah is an inspired and inspiring work of art that rarely fails to elicit reverence and joy.

Valley Concert Choral Christmas Concerts

Valley Concert Choral Christmas Concerts
New carols. Old carols. Carols you know by heart. Carols that give comfort and carols that spread joy. That is exactly what audiences will hear, and sing along with, when the Valley Concert Chorale performs its annual holiday concerts. This year's performances titled "Carols of Comfort and Joy" which includes the ever-popular audience sing-a-long of traditional carols, will offer audiences a variety of carols including carols from around the world.

"'Carols of Comfort and Joy' will be a very unique holiday experience for audiences," says John Emory Bush, the Chorale's artistic director. "We'll take a trip around the world and sing carols from several countries arranged by some of the world's finest carol composers and writers."

This portion of the performance represents a wide range of choral traditions and styles - from a powerful arrangement of an fifth century Armenian hymn, a carol in the style of Nigerian art music, an ancient Latvian folk song, and a Canadian Christmas carol that dates from 1643.

"Each carol has its own style of capturing the spirituality and message of the season- the mystery of Christmas, which is common among all the countries," explains Bush.

Adding to the holiday spirit of the performances will be familiar and traditional carols such as 'The Twelve Days of Christmas,' and those with familiar holiday melodies including a lullaby and a good old wassail song.

Food Drive to Benefit Open Heart Kitchen The Chorale will host a food drive at both "Carols of Comfort and Joy" performances on Dec. 4 and 5. Donated items will go directly to the Tri-Valley's own Open Heart Kitchen which feeds hundreds of families each year.

"We encourage everyone who attends the performances to bring a non-perishable item to put in the donation barrels," says Norma Foss, VCC Treasurer and food drive coordinator. "It's the Chorale's way of spreading some comfort and joy to families in need who live in our community."

Mt. Diablo Beacon is lit in honor of the Pearl Harbor attack.
The beacon on the top of Mt. Diablo had been used until December 7, 1941.  With the attack on Pearl Harbor, the beacon was turned off so as to not guide Japanese planes on night missions.  After the war, there was no longer a need for the beacon, so it has not been used since.
In 1964 the beacon was repaired, and it has been lit once a year, on the evening of December 7th, in honor those who were at Pearl Harbor that day.  The beacon is turned off in the morning on the 8th.   There is a short ceremony in the summit building with several survivors talking about their experience.  Note that space is very limited for the ceremony, and generally only family and press are able to fit in the room.
eLivermore.com attended that ceremony in 2010.
Sponsor: Mt. Diablo chapter of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association
Location:  Summit at Mt Diablo.  Beacon can easily be seen in the Livermore Valley.
Times:  Ceremony starts around 3:30pm.  Beacon is lit around 4:30pm.
