Once again North Coast Chorale (NCC) is preparing for the annual community “Messiah” Sing-Along / Play-Along. This benefit is for our local food banks and will be held on Sunday, November 27th, at 4 p.m., Charlene Larsen Center for the Performing Arts, 588 – 16th Street, Astoria. This NCC sponsored event is free with the only request being a monetary donation or shelf-stable food items. Everything received goes directly to the Clatsop Community Action’s Regional Foodbank, which distributes to our local foodbanks. There are many ways to enjoy this afternoon of musical enchantment: simply listen to the choruses and arias sung by NCC and soloists; or “Sing Along”, using your own or scores provided by the Chorale; or bring your Strings, horns, and/or percussion instrument and “Play Along” with the accompanist. It will be a delightful afternoon for everyone!
