Conducted by Dr. Jamie Spillane, the Southeast Iowa Symphony Orchestra presented their sixth annual Messiah Sing on December 12, 2009 at the newly renovated Iowa Wesleyan College Chapel Auditorium. This is an amazing musical experience to behold because the AUDIENCE IS THE SHOW!
Professional musicians/singers, novice level singers, and spectators gathered from several towns in Iowa to share in the enjoyment of George Frederick Handels The Messiah. There are no practices—people just show up and can sit with other people who share the same singing part, or they can sit with friends. Usually though, most of the singers sit downstairs according to the suggested chart, (for more efficient cues from the director for music entrances) and the spectators sit upstairs.
Women in fur coats, men in tuxedoes, teenagers in denim jeans, elderly people, and children came for this joyous occasion.




For those who didnt have their own musical scores, there were music books available for purchase.

Soloists included: Shannon Cochran (Fairfield H.S.) Carrie Vincent (Mt. Pleasant H.S.) Priscilla Marlar (IWC) Margaret Clair (IWC Adjunct Faculty) Mallory Ensminger (IWC) Aaron Warner (IWC) Doug Stewart (IWC) Dr. Tim Ahern (SCC Faculty) Micah Morgan (ISU) Brian Langr (Washington HS)
