Annual Messiah Sing set for Dec. 17
MIDDLEBURY — Every year in mid-December, friends and neighbors join together in downtown Middlebury for a Messiah Sing. The tradition continues again this year on Sunday afternoon, Dec. 17, starting at 2 p.m., at the Congregational Church of Middlebury, at 2 Main Street.
Join in this sing-along of many of the beloved choruses from Handel’s Messiah, including the well-known Hallelujah chorus. Several solo arias from the work will be offered by singers from the local community and across the state. Instrumentalists are also invited to join in that day. Jeff Rehbach conducts.
Music scores are provided, or bring your own, for singers. For those who play a string instrument, flute, oboe, or bassoon, orchestra parts are also available at the reading. Donations gratefully accepted at the door ($5-10 adult/$10-$20 family).
Come enjoy a wonderful afternoon of joyous music-making, a holiday tradition since 1984.
