Hallelujah! For those who enjoy the thrill of singing the ethereal high notes and booming bass notes of Handel’s wildly popular Messiah themselves, the Los Angeles Master Chorale presents the 31st Annual Messiah Sing-Along, in which the 2,200-member audience becomes the choir, December 12, 2011, 7:30 pm, at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Four Chorale members are the featured soloists: Ayana Haviv, soprano, Tracy Van Fleet, mezzo-soprano, Jon Lee Keenan, tenor, and Steve Pence, bass. Music Director Grant Gershon conducts a chamber orchestra, the soloists and, of course, the audience, in this very special tradition, proclaimed “a holiday bestseller” (LA Weekly) and “more festive than karaoke” (Downtown News). Messiah scores are available for $10 at the door.
“The Messiah Sing-Along is one of the highlights of the holiday,” says Gershon, “You can't help but feel the spirit of the season when you're literally surrounded by people joined together in song.”
