Sing-a-long in DCPC

Messiah Sing-a-long

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 • 7 p.m. • DCPC Tickets

Bring your own score (we'll have a few to share!) and join the Davidson College Choirs, family, friends, and community members from Statesville to Charlotte to sing the choruses and hear the solos sung from the most popular portions of Handel's Messiah. Our performance of this time-honored masterwork will be accompanied by the exquisite North Carolina Baroque Orchestra in the beautiful and resonant sanctuary of Davidson College Presbyterian Church. Whether Messiah is a well-known favorite you wish to sing, or whether you prefer to simply listen and absorb, you will be inspired and invigorated as hundreds of singers and instrumentalists raise their voices in this cherished holiday tradition.
