Following on from the enormous success of The Handel Challenge 2013, the task has once again been set to recruit 100 local singers to fundraise €200 each, rehearse all choruses and perform Handel’s Messiah on November 2 2014 in the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar. Featuring top international soloists and orchestra, this promises to be a truly spectacular night. Over €33,000 was raised by this event for Mayo/Roscommon Hospice in 2013. This year, all funds raised will be divided between Mayo/Roscommon Hospice and Mayo Mental Health.
Several of last year’s choir members have happily committed to sing again in November but they are still recruiting. They are particularly interested in getting more tenors and basses involved although there are a certain number of places available for sopranos and altos also. If you, or anyone you know, feels they may be interested in this great fundraising event please email handelchallen [email protected] or contact Ronan Egan (chairperson ) on 087 8154009 for further information.
