The Messiah Sing-Along, a long time holiday tradition, returns again to Severance Hall (11001 Euclid Ave., Cleveland). This Sunday, December 15 at 7:30PM, join Credo Chamber Music and the greater Cleveland community as they sing all the beloved sections of Handel’s Messiah to celebrate the season!

Credo’s Artistic Director Peter Slowik commented, “Last year we received a warm welcome from the Cleveland community and we look forward to making this an annual event. What makes our Messiah Sing-Along different from most others is that we touch on all three sections of Handel’s magnum opus.  We represent Handel’s entire intention, exploring the depth and full meaning of the Christmas Story. We’ve gotten an enthusiastic response from the community and we are looking forward to this event.”

This sing-along promises to be a community gathering unlike any other. Take the outstanding musicians (including prize-winning vocal soloists from Oberlin Conservatory and a chamber orchestra), enthusiastic singers who are ready to belt out the Hallelujah Chorus, and an acoustically superior chamber hall – together you have the makings of the largest Messiah Sing-Along in Cleveland!  If you’ve never been to Reinberger, come experience the more intimate gem of the Severance complex.

All are invited to attend and participate or sit back and listen! Tickets are expected to sell out, so please reserve them early at the Severance box office, 216.231.1111 or Scores will be available for rent for $5, but attendees are encouraged to bring their own.
