Perhaps you’ve already sung Part 1 of Handel’s Messiah, as well as the famous “Hallelujah Chorus”, maybe you’ve only just dreamed of doing it… Well, your chance to sing, or to sing again, this wonderful work can become real each year on one Sunday in December at the American Cathedral in Paris, 23 Avenue George V, 75008 Paris.
This year the Sing-Along (the 28th edition!) will take place on Sunday, December 11, at 3pm.
Soloists: Rachel Redmond (Soprano), Grace Durham (Alto), Maciej Kwasnikowski (Tenor) and Alexander York (Bass).
What is a “sing-along”?
You, the public (supported by the members of the Paris Choral Society seated amongst you), get to sing if you want. Maybe you can already sing the whole of the Messiah, or maybe you can sing only bits and pieces of it, or maybe none of it. Who cares? Your pleasure will come from participating. Or if you wish, simply listening. Why not? Just imagine the thrill of being among 400 singers!
Each year, Zachary Ullery, the Musical Director of the PCS, and Director of Music of the American Cathedral, along with the Cathedral Organist, Andrew Dewar, lead professional soloists and you, the public, in the Cathedral for the mutual enjoyment of all.
No reservation is required for the Sing-Along but you can pre-book tickets. Tickets can also be purchased on the door the day of the performance. If you do not have a score, don’t worry, you can rent one at the door for €5 – or, better still, buy one for €15 at the door and then you’ll be ready for every year!
Participants are also invited to attend rehearsal on Monday December 5th 7.30pm – 10pm at The American Cathedral on presentation of their ticket for this event.
