Resort at Squaw Creek to host TOCCATA performance

The Orchestra and Community Choral Artists of the Tahoe Area (TOCCATA) will present Handel’s Messiah performed by orchestra, chorus and soloists in a first-time performance at the Resort at Squaw Creek on Sunday, Dec. 21 at 3:30 p.m.

The program will include favorite selections from the Messiah as well as seasonal carols. The audience will be invited to participate during the carols, and the allelluhah chorus. “People will really want to join us,” said TOCCATA singer and Board of Directors member Eileen Angelucci. “This is a very uplifting piece of music, in a time when people could really use it.”

General admission is $20 adults, $15 seniors, $5 for students with valid ID and $30 preferred. Children under 12 are admitted free with a paying adult.

Other performances of the Messiah are Saturday, Dec. 20 at 7:30 p.m. in South Lake Tahoe at St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, and Monday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 p.m. at the Carson City Community Center. The Carson City performance is a fundraiser for the Carson High School Choir and admission includes a post-concert reception.
