Handel’s Messiah is probably the most Christmassy programme for all, especially with such grandeur and majestic vibe. Thanks to everyone’s support, our first ‘Messiah Sing-Along’ concert last year was a huge success, leaving us a vivid memory of the powerful Hallelujah chorus resonating through the Grand Hall. Owing to popular demand, the second ‘Messiah Sing-Along’ will be held in December 2018. Shortly before Christmas, join us to sing the world’s most produced choral work in Western music history and marvel at the intricate juxtaposition of vocal harmony in Handel’s masterpiece.
First-timers or vocal enthusiasts alike, raise your voice, pour your heart out, and rejoice on the magnificence of music as we celebrate the festive season together in the Grand Hall with orchestral accompaniment!
Some works are newly selected for this year’s sing-along – please review the programme list beforehand. A very limited number of scores will be available for sale at the concert. You are strongly encouraged to download them for free now and bring along your own copy. Thank you!
