in Arts by

A staple holiday tradition throughout the world, on December 5th, the Sea Island Chamber Singers will present Part I of Handel’s famous oratorio, Messiah, at USCB Center for the Arts. An auditioned choir consisting of 28 singers, the Sea Island Chamber Singers have expanded their ranks to 42 singers for this special performance of Messiah. The choir is part of the Music Ministry of Sea Island Presbyterian Church. While some of the singers are members of the Sea Island Church, a number of them are from the larger Beaufort community as well as other churches. Under the direction of Charles D. Frost, Minister of Music at the Sea Island Church, this group formed seven years ago to fill a need in the community for another choral group. With a select group, he is able to concentrate on more technical issues of vocal technique, sound, and
musical interpretation.

Come together as a community and join us for this iconic event of the holiday season. There are two opportunities to experience the magic of Handel’s Messiah on Saturday, December 5th 2015 at 3 p.m. and 7 p,m. Adult tickets are $25, senior tickets are $20, and student tickets are $15. Tickets may be purchased online, over the phone, by calling the box office at 843-521-4145 or in person at the Center for the Arts, 805 Carteret Street in downtown Beaufort.
