Sooke Philharmonic Orchestra And Chorus

Messiah is one of the most beloved classical music pieces in the world. Handel composed this intricate choral work in an astonishing three to four weeks in 1741. All three parts of the Messiah will be performed, including 20 solo and 19 choral sections, ending with the beautiful Amen chorus.
The 25th annual “Santa Run” will take place on Saturday, December 8th starting at dusk (5ish). Presented by the Sooke Firefighter’s Association and IAFF Local 4841, the annual Santa Run is a well-loved holiday tradition in Sooke. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of firefighters from the District of Sooke, Otter Point and East Sooke, much- needed cash and food donations are collected in support of the Sooke Christmas Bureau and local families in need.
