Last Saturday night, I was fortunate to hear a performance of George Frideric Handel’s Messiah. It was my first time hearing the oratorio in person so I was pretty excited. The performance included the Cantate Community Chorus, the Guam Territorial Band, the Guam Symphony Orchestra, as well as KIA, a classical quartet from Japan.
I’m not a classical music aficionado, but I’m appreciating the beauty of music more and more these days. The fact that the music is performed by individuals from the community makes it all the more enjoyable.
Guam is much more than just a tourist destination. It’s an island community brimming with culture, art, and humanity.
