On behalf of the Orchestra of Southern Utah, we thank you for auditioning for a solo in this year’s upcoming Messiah. We had far more audition than we had slots. Even if you were not chosen for a soloist this year, we would love to have you sing with us in the chorus. The following have been chosen for the following solos:
Larry Johnson Comfort Ye and Every Valley
Annie Powell Behold, A Virgin Shall Conceive and O Thou That Tellest
Shaye Leavitt There were Shepherds; And the Angel Said Unto Them;
Laurice Williamson Then Shall the Eyes of the Blind; He Shall Feed His Flock
Melissa Leavitt Come Unto Him
Taliah Byers He Was Despised
Jan Pressgrove I Know That My Redeemer Liveth
Alex Byers Behold, I tell you a Mystery; The Trumpet Shall Sound
Christina Meikle If God Be For Us
The Chorus will be singing: And the Glory; For Unto Us a Child is Born; Glory to God; His Yoke is Easy; Lift Up Your Heads; Hallelujah; Since By Man Came Death; and Worthy is the Lamb
Harold Shirley, President of the OSU Board
Kevin Baker, Cedar City Chorale Director
Pete Akins, OSU Executive Director

The Messiah concerts will be performed Sunday, December 9th and Monday, December 10th at the Heritage Center at 7:30 p.m. The concert is a free gift to the community thanks to sponsorship from State Bank of Southern Utah and the Leavitt Group.
