Messiah From Scratch 2020 POSTPONED*
DECEMBER 27th, 2020 – CANCELLED
Now in its 42nd year, with some musicians participating since conception, Messiah from Scratch brings orchestral musicians and singers of all ages together to support Feed Nova Scotia and the Chebucto Symphony Orchestra. Messiah music scores are provided for a quick, one-hour rehearsal and then performed for the public, from scratch.
With much regret, we are officially cancelling our annual Messiah from Scratch event on December 27th, 2020 for the first time in many years. There were plans to arrange for a virtual concert, but given that the greatest pleasure of the event is the coming-together-ness of the community, we decided that an on-screen performance stitched together by recordings made alone would just not be the same.
This community event, was also an important fundraiser for many charities in our city. The Chebucto Orchestral Society of Nova Scotia board of directors has decided to continue our support of our local charities this year.
This year we will be supporting Feed NS and Phoenix House!
We would like to encourage all community members who are able to also support Feed NS, or their local charities in these hard times.
* We are also keeping our options open for a possible “in-person” Messiah around Easter 2021, in a format that would be allowed at the time.
Updates will be made available on our website as information becomes available.
