Messiah Sings

December 2013 · A holiday tradition for over 50 years!

Masterworks Chorale presents the widely popular Messiah Sing, the 52nd annual sing-along performances of Handel’s magnificent oratorio – where the audience is the chorus! Masterworks was among the first choruses in the country to present the Messiah Sing when they premiered this event in 1962, and it remains a beloved part of the holiday musical scene.  Neal Hampton joins us as guest conductor.
