Regina audience joins in on Handel's Messiah
Weekend performances mark Gordon Gerrard's 1st Messiah
The audience was welcomed to be part of the show Sunday afternoon as the Regina Symphony Orchestra performed Handel's Messiah.
People gathered at the Knox United Church in Regina to participate in a sing along of the composition.
The Sunday performance was the second half of a two-day billing. The two shows were also new music director Gordon Gerrard's first performances of Messiah.
"People absolutely loved it," said Tanya Derksen, executive director of the RSO.
The sing along is a holiday tradition, practiced across the country, Derksen said.
"There's a lot of people that come and just want to sing for fun."
A ghostly apparition of Handel himself dropped by during the performance to engage with the crowd.
