George Handel’s Messiah

Sketching at the Oratorio Society of Utah, Messiah


I love sketching at concerts. Somehow the intensity of the music gets into your sketches and it adds something to the visuals. Your hands and pen get into the rhythm of notes and singing. There are also some great black and white visuals and shapes caused by black bowties and  tuxedos. You can start several sketches and move back to them as people move back into the same poses. These sketches were made at the Sunday night performance of the Oratorio Society of Utah at the Libby Gardner Hall. It was fun to watch the soloists as they listened to the music. There was some slight head bobbing and some glistening of eyes.
