I did Handel's "Messiah" twice in college; one time we did it in Rose 
Center (now the McGuirk Center) at CMU.  I love all the arias and 
recitatives leading into "He Trusted in God...," and "O Thou That 
Tellest Good Tidings to Zion."

Terri,
This is the coolest thing ever!  The best choir I ever had the pleasufre 
of singing in, performed that piece, and I can still rtemember that 
beautiful line "And Suddenly, there was with the angel, a multitude of 
the heavenly host, praising God And Saying!!!!

and you know the rest.  It sounds like this conductor is very open to 
your performing with his chorale group and that there might be other 
opportunities for you in the future.  I would love to have heard you. 
You had to have ben fantastic, as I have heard you sing just a little 
bit at camp and once at convention in 2009 I think.
Congratulations on getting paid too.  That is great!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, Love and blessings
Christine
