Handel’s Messiah Sing-Along

Does the holiday season give you an uncontrollable desire to burst into a song of joy? Would you love to sing one of the most uplifting, touching and magnificent pieces of music ever composed?  Join the Santa Ynez Valley Master Chorale for a sing-along of Handel’s most beloved choral masterpiece Messiah on December 15th at 7 pm in St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church, 2901 Nojoqui Avenue, Los Olivos.

The Chorale will provide the conductor, organist and music scores if you’ll warm up your vocal chords, don your holiday sweater and come ready to sing and rejoice with family, friends, neighbors, people you have yet to meet, and the Chorale.  Children are welcome. 

The sing-along is free. A suggested donation of $20 would also be welcome.



Under the direction of Dr. Michael Eglin, the Chorale and a professional orchestra will present a program of classic and contemporary holiday pieces on December 8 and 9.  The program centerpiece will be Johann Sebastian Bach’s Magnificat, an exuberant and dramatic piece written by Bach in Leipzig for 1723 Christmas Vespers.  The concert program will also include an eclectic mix of holiday favorites. 

This concert is one of several that the Chorale regularly brings to the community.  The Chorale is a member-supported, non-profit organization that performs diverse choral music accompanied by professional musicians.  Comprised of adults and children, the Chorale has been presenting concerts of outstanding and varied music for forty years.
