Soloists for this year’s performance of Handel’s “Messiah” will be DeVera Bowles’ students, Christina Larsen, Megan Kramer and Kylee Cook, singing the soprano and mezzo solos. Sebastian Haboczki will make his Minot debut singing the tenor solos and Minot State alumnus Erik Anderson will sing the baritone solos.

Minot’s 94th performance of the oratorio will take place Sunday at 4 p.m. in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on the Minot State University campus.

The orchestra will feature the original string and wind scoring that George Friedrich Handel originally conceived when he finished “Messiah” in 1741. Those attending will hear strings, led by Maureen Murchie from Bismarck, harpsichord and organ along with oboes, trumpets, timpani and the assembled 100 voices of all the Minot choral organizations.

Donations will be accepted at the performance to benefit the Ken and DeVera Bowles Scholarship fund for music students and the Messiah Endowment Fund to keep the “Messiah” performance tradition going into the future.
