The Choral Art Society of New Jersey, Inc. announces its annual Messiah Sing will take place on Friday, December 3, 2010, at 8:00 P.M. at the First United Methodist Church, 1 East Broad Street, Westfield. James S. Little, Musical Director of the Society, will conduct the beloved Handel oratorio. Audience members are invited to bring scores and join in singing both choruses and solo sections or simply come to listen. Trent Johnson, former organist and choir director at First United Methodist Church, will accompany the Messiah Sing on the church’s Aeolean-Skinner Pipe Organ.
The Messiah Sing has become a Westfield tradition and is an ideal way to kick off the holiday season. Admission to the Messiah Sing is $10 at the door where scores may be borrowed for the evening.
Mr. Little is no stranger to the Messiah Community event having previously both accompanied and directed the performance. In addition to his duties as the Director of the Choral Art Society, he has been the organist and choirmaster of Calvary Episcopal Church, Summit, N.J. , since 1993, having previously held similar positions at Mountainside's Community Presbyterian Church. At Calvary Church, Mr. Little directs an adult choir, two youth choirs and the Calvary Concert Series.
