            After the Amazing Love Concert, celebrating the 60th anniversary of Bangkok Combined Choir in October, I marked my calendar for Messiah this year.

I had not realized that my favourite bass-baritone soloist, Kittinant Chinsamran, would be in the concert, though. It was a nice surprise. Kittinant is at present the well known classical Thai male vocalist with his velvety tone, beautiful timbre and high professionalism. While studying in San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Kittinant has won the San Francisco Sinfonietta’s Messiah Competition in 2007. He performed Messiah as bass soloist at San Francisco Symphony Hall from 2007-2009. Listening to his performance is such a joyful moment.

Actually, soloists this year are all at their top form. They are Shelly Cooper – soprano, Puntwitt Asawadejmetakul – countertenor, Voltaire Calahat Oblimar – tenor and Kittinant Chinsamran – baritone. The four of them seem to complement each other, which I think it is the conductor’s correct choice.

Thanks to Associate Professor Charunee Hongcharu once again, Messiah this year was one of those performances with excellent rendition.
