"It's certainly our biggest production - particularly with the amount of people we have (performing) in it," said Denise Isaacson, Richey Community Orchestra's executive director.

"It's very challenging," Isaacson said. "The music is not easy for the musicians or the singers, so to be able to present it on a professional level is thrilling."
It's been awhile since the Richey Community Orchestra has taken on Messiah. The last time was in March of 1993 - smack in the aftermath of the no-name storm that flooded the Pasco coastline before moving up the eastern seaboard.
"We had 4 feet of saltwater in our house, but the production still went on," Isaacson said.
In a stroke of better timing, this year's concert will be held on the 272nd anniversary of Messiah's first outing that was performed for an audience of 700 on April 13, 1742, in Dublin, Ireland.
Isaacson sees that as a good sign along with a very smooth last rehearsal that had the two directors sporting ear-to-ear grins.
"It's coming together in more than a nice way," she said, noting the hard work put forth by volunteer musicians, singers, the music directors as well as the hospitality of the First Baptist Church of Elfers, which donates rehearsal space and will host the Messiah performance in the church sanctuary.
"This production really comes together through the generosity of so many people," Isaacson said.
