Performance of Messiah

On Saturday night I sang with the Darwin Chorale in Handel's Messiah in the Supreme Court building. There was another performance on Sunday afternoon too. Both shows were sold out. Men, women, children, young and old. Not cheap either.
In this photo you can see the four soloists, the conductor Matthew Wood, the Darwin Symphony Orchestra and the Darwin Chorale. The soprano (in black) is Jassy Husk. The mezzo-soprano (in red) is Caroline Vercoe. The tenor is Robert Macfarlane. The bass is Simon Lobelson. The two men wore white tie and tails and the ladies wore evening gowns.
I am on the right hand side, not far from the timpany. Second front row. Second from the end. Next to the blond lady who is actually standing at a lower level than I am. The singers with different coloured scarves are the visiting choristers from Dili.

The soloists are standing just at the head of the stairs so the railings look a bit odd. This is not my photo, because I was busy at the time, but it was shared with me and many others.
